Why a Festival?

Why a Festival?

Without a doubt, Arts Council is a touring organism. The programme is organised centrally and from there spreads itself amongst the constituency. While the touring programme is of obvious merit, there is equal merit in the converse operation. Programmes can be devised amongst the constituency and subsequently come together at a central location with equal effect. This latter method is the Arts Festival, which necessarily complements the work of a toruing organisation.

At present there is no opportunity for campus cultural groups to meet and exchange ideas and experience. The national Arts Festival would provide this opportunity. At an Arts Festival, students can meet and take part in exhibitions, performances, workshops, jam sessions, etc in every conceivable cultural activity found on campuses throughout New Zealand. This can only act as a stimulus for further creativity as well as providing an opportunity for a good time for like-minded people.
