OUT LOUD is a different experience

depending on the space and community it is invited into. 

A festival that re-invents itself in an improvisation

with great spaces and their communities

Join us for an improvisation with the Centre Wakefield La Pêche

a number of visual and musical artists joining us for this uplifting event!

In OUT LOUD: WAKEFIELD STORIES OF CHANGE, Live art, music, video, performance, an artificial intelligence ‘ritual’ and more offer the public many different entry points into the conversation, including ART ENGAGEMENT projects you can take part in NOW. Click here to draw, paint, colour, collage, write on the empty stage and click here to be part of the Artificial Intelligence Ritual.

The public can roam freely throughout the building, choosing their own way as they respond to this unique view of the multiple possibilities for the space.  This special line up will turn the Gwen Shea Hall into an immersive space where the public and enter a digitally projected environment created in collaboration with some of this region’s most beloved artists.


Event line up, info on the artists and musicians, and venue map available to download here on September 30th
