GDIF 2018 21 June – 7 July Free Entry

Global Streets

Global Streets is a three-year national touring programme – supported by Arts Council England through the Strategic Touring Programme – that sets out to transform communities by bringing the very best international outdoor arts to towns and cities across the country where there is low engagement with the arts.

Founded and managed by FESTIVAL.ORG, the ten Global Streets partners work together to enable audiences in Hounslow, Birmingham, Doncaster, Barking & Dagenham, Liverpool, Hull, Woolwich, Slough, Leicester and Luton to enjoy extraordinary participative outdoor performances by international artists.
