Elements is a brand-new festival celebrating age and diversity, with events in venues across Cumbria. Piloted in October 2016, the festival commissions and incorporates high-quality arts productions and programmes across Cumbria, involving local artists, organisations and communities as well as attracting visitors from around the UK.
Elements’ key values are:
- Quality at the core of the programme;
- Inclusive, of different genders, sexualities, ethnicities and abilities in the development and delivery of the festival;
- Relevant to the local people of Cumbria as well as to the wider population in the UK;
- Non-Political – although political events might be included, Elements is not a political event.
