Assemble Fest is an ambitious beast. We've got a lot going on this year with performances, street activity, workshops and more, which should add up to a great day out for all. Already though, we’re planning for next year – and the year after that! By 2017, we're hoping that the festival will cover a number of different spots in the city, with more artists and businesses involved and a wide range of visiting eyes from across the country.
None of this, including Assemble Fest ‘14, would be possible without the support from organisations outside of the Assemble Fest HQ – no matter what marketing man Rich spins at you!
We are very fortunate to have two formal partners on board with the festival. Both Hull Truck Theatre and Hull University have gone out of their way to provide rehearsal space, time and resources to Assemble Fest, and that support is invaluable to an event such as this.
Similarly, we are lucky enough to have secured a number of financial contributors to the festival: Arts Council England, Hull City Arts, Community First Newland, The Sir James Reckitt Charity and KC in the Community – we salute you!
As a producer working in Hull, I am particularly pleased with the breadth of support we have secured and I think the organisations above indicate what a wide range of bodies are keen to support the arts in Hull. Whether it be local businesses, charities, the council or even national supporters, there’s a real desire to support work being made in this city – it’s just up to us to find it!
