Peacemakers are excited at the prospect of collaborating with Kidderminster Arts Festival (KAF) this year especially as their theme is to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of WW1. Kidderminster College and several local businesses are already supporting KAF financially and through the organisation of music, dance, film, poetry and choral events celebrating peace in stark contrast to war.
The festival began its life in 2003 with a small grant from the Arts Council and the participation of just 2000 people and like International Peace Day it now enjoys an ever increasing and enthusiastic audience.
Since it’s conception it has become the flag ship project of Wyre Forest District Councils Arts and Play Developments portfolio of work. KAF now works with a huge range of partners, commissions new work and has at its peak in 2013 attracted audiences of over 27,000 people. KAF relies almost entirely on external funding if you would like to help by supporting the event you can contribute through the link on their contacts page.
