OWEN SHEERS PATRON
TO THE ABERGAVENNY ARTS FESTIVAL
‘I’m thrilled to be a patron of Abergavenny Arts Festival – never before in my lifetime has it felt more urgent to foster enriching communal experiences, or to encourage new thinking and conversation through creativity and expression. That Abergavenny Arts Festival is passionate about making these experiences as inclusive and accessible as possible is so important. It’s only by living, feeling, talking and thinking together that we can hope to create a more equal, sustainable and positive society. Festivals such as this, which aim to remove perceived barriers to engagement or enjoyment of the arts, are not only vital as part of that process, but also create year-round legacies that are all the richer for the embedding of this vision within their endeavour.’
ABOUT THE ARTS FESTIVAL
The Abergavenny Arts Festival is being facilitated by the voluntary group Arts Abergavenny. It is supported by a growing network of artists, community groups, volunteers, businesses, sponsors and friends who are passionate about public education and participation in, and appreciation of, the arts in this area.
All proceeds will be reinvested in the next Festival and other arts-related activities and events throughout the year. The frequency of such activities and events will be decided by Arts Abergavenny with the support of the network.
