The Faces of FoN: Part One!

Under a large white marquee, a light-skinned woman stands on stage, wearing a bight magenta jacket and reading to an attentive seated crowd from a piece of paper.

Festival Of Now ’22 was MOST EXCELLENT! We had a great time getting connected with our growing communities through arts activities and installations, a little artists market, live music, spoken word, comedy, and of course THE ANIMAL FARM! 🤩

mindshare hosted our first ever Creative Hub this year to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of FoN, and we got a little air time on stage in a panel discussion with comedians Joshua Warrior, Lori Bell, Cecelia Ronson, and musician Phi Theodoros! This year was also the first time our category winners had the chance to read their work on stage, and we LOVED IT! You can see a little of our experience on the day on our Instagram account; we reposted a capture of our Creative Writing Award Winners presenting on stage here, and some photos of our Creative Hub in a little reel here. Click through to check them out!

If you would like a more detailed breakdown however, we have below a fantastic review of some of the performers and artists involved in Festival of Now ’22, written by social services students on placement with the Creative Outreach team  at Life Without Barriers, lead by the effervescent Phi Theodoros.  We feel so grateful to the LWB students and volunteers for capturing this beautiful and heart warming recounting of their Festival Of Now Experience! I’d also like to say thank to the incredible Georgia from @access2arts for judging and presenting the awards, and being a wonderful steadying hand on the day! I’ve not presented an Award Ceremony like this, and she was a blessing to my jangled nerves!

Ultimately, I feel we all had a blast at this years Festival Of Now. Many beautiful connections were made, and we’d like to give out utmost heartfelt thanks to everyone involved. We can’t wait till next year! 🥰
