Who has made this Festival?
To engage the local community in the Art & Industry Festival, Donna Jackson ran a series of community workshops with a range of artists and arts facilitators called Lion Taming Your Arts Project. At the conclusion of each workshop series, participants were offered an opportunity to complete a project plan. This plan could lead to paid employment or mentoring on a project within the Festival. Donna also partnered and collaborated with local businesses, institutions, venues and artists to create events.
