GDIF is turning 25!
The festival will open in Woolwich Town Centre with the UK première of a new production by French performance company Gratte Ciel, featuring a gigantic suspended dreamcatcher, aerial performance, 360-degree pyrotechnics and the words and contributions of Woolwich-based community and cultural groups, curated by Booker Prize winner and Woolwich Laureate Bernardine Evaristo and poet and founder of RevolYOUtion London, Rasheeda Page-Muir.
Supported by the Royal Borough of Greenwich, GDIF’s Opening Night, entitled Woolwich Rising, will take place on 28 August in General Gordon Square.
While we’re all staying safe at home, we’ve teamed up with teespring to offer 10% off at the GDIF online store! You can buy GDIF t-shirts, hoodies, and more from the comfort of your sofa, so you can show your support before the festival has even started!
