Best Arts Project 2021

Festival of Hope

What our judges said:

"Of all years, 2020 needed a Festival of Hope! By giving the reins of this project to young people, the project demonstrated faith and ambition in the young producers, and showed them that they were valued by the heritage sector. The young people proved themselves worthy of this faith, producing a festival with both online and offline content, which was therefore more accessible to their wider community."
"A multi-partner initiative, The Festival of Hope 2020 set out to demonstrate what can be achieved when young people take the lead, and despite the difficulties caused by the pandemic, it provided genuine leadership opportunities to young people and rethinks the way heritage is explored and shared."
