Meet the Artists at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival:
We would like you to invite you to meet some of our 2021 Norfolk & Norwich Festival artists, in these special video interviews. This trailer video is a gateway to many more full interviews withO Festival artists, where they tell you all about themselves, their art form, their inspirations, give advice and talk about their careers. Each artist sets a Creative Challenge for you to try yourself linked to their art form and the work they do. Please give some of them a try and share what you do or create with us, either on social media by tagging @nnfest or email to Creative Learning Manager Sarah.Witcomb@nnfestival.org.uk These videos are also perfect for supporting an Arts Award or Artsmark journey, so please enjoy and make use of these great resources.
