WTF is a free one day contemporary festival of live art, sound, music, video and installation. WTF 2012 is the third edition of this dynamic and experimental festival curated by Kassia Zermon (Bunty) and Chloe Hoare in association with Beatabet.
A sound field powered by the elements, re-imagined furniture, a fashion show, the smart phone orchestra, shoe shining, live wall collage, toy hacking, durational jigsaw and found slide stories are some of the many works on offer in this extraordinary arts festival that cannot be missed.
Make Do and Mend
In this time of austerity in which art organisations are operating on slashed budgets and artists have dwindling financial support from both the public and private sectors, this festival imagines an art world that loosens it's ties with money.
Make Do and Mend rejects the commodification of the art object and invites alternative modes of artistic practice.
Site-specific works and interactive performances will create a playground for visitors to discover. An exploration of these enchanting gardens will reveal interventions, installations and sculptures consisting of materials that are ephemeral, discarded or borrowed. A live music stage will host an eclectic mix of music. From Bunty 's live looping antics and electronic maestros AKDK to Balkan folk singers Bare foot Howlers and dark strung songs from Kristin Mclement and many more acts.
