Revoluton Arts were delighted to be part of Global Streets Strategic Touring Programme of international outdoor arts funded by Arts Council England. The partners were: Birmingham Hippodrome; Cast; Creative Barking and Dagenham; Freedom Festival; Greenwich+Docklands International Festival; Leicester City Council and Watermans.
As part of the strategic partnership we were able to bring outdoor arts to Luton for 3 years. The events were international, large scale, high quality, accessible outdoor art for family audiences. The events were targeted at Luton’s diverse audience. Luton based people were also active participants.
