The 2020 Arts by the Sea festival core programming will take place on 25th-27th September. The core programme is a 3-day celebratory explosion of art with many fantastic events taking place throughout the town centre. The festival is focused on programming inclusive and accessible events across a range of disciplines, most of which will be free and unrestricted to attend. The festival is delivered by BCP Council with the support of Arts Council England.
Venues for the 2020 festival include Bournemouth's Central and Lower Gardens, Beachfront and Pier Approach as well as including dozens of small gig spaces, theatres, libraries and cafes which participate in the Associated Events programme.
For the 10th Arts by the Sea we are interested in hearing from artists, event organisers, and producers to share any creative, innovative and engaging ideas and performances including workshops, live stages, lectures, stalls and film screenings, to name a few.
Arts by the Sea have been amending our practices over the past couple of years to become more ethical, sustainable and to reduce our environmental impact. We encourage and support our partners to do the same.
