FESTIVAL.ORG is one of the UK’s leading outdoor arts producing organisations. Collaborating with artists and arts organisations around the world to create extraordinary productions, we commission, re-imagine, produce and showcase a growing repertory of work that brings public spaces to life and is engaging and inspiring large, diverse audiences.
Beyond the flagship Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, FESTIVAL.ORG’s year-round programme encompasses Global Streets (a national touring programme that through a distinctive free programme of international outdoor arts is transforming communities in 10 English towns and cities in some of the least-arts engaged areas the country) and Woolwich Cultural Destinations (an Arts Council funded project designed to enhance the destination appeal of Woolwich through a programme of arts activity and tourism management). FESTIVAL.ORG is also a founding member of the Without Walls and Stomping Ground commissioning consortia.
FESTIVAL.ORG also plays a distinctive, strategic role within the wider outdoor arts sector by devising and producing large-scale work (including ceremony-scale spectacle), by working with culturally diverse artists and by introducing new artists into the outdoors who might previously have worked in building-based contexts. Established as a sector leader in disability arts and access, FESTIVAL.ORG is pioneering new approaches to access and audience engagement and supports D/deaf and disabled artists to make shows for outdoor environments. We have been awarded Gold by Attitude is Everything on their Charter for Best Practice for GDIF, for demonstrating continued commitment to accessibility for D/deaf and disabled people.
