Art, Inclusion, and Culture

Wow, just WOW!

The Articulate Festival was amazing if we do say so ourselves. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, and there was so much to see and do.

Close to 400 people came through the gates (and that is not counting volunteers, performers, and market stalls) – which isn’t bad for a first time effort. We know that bookings were made, and that commissions were requested, and that made us VERY happy.  Seeing so many happy faces on children also made us happy.

Here’s some other figures

8400+ visitors to the Articulate Website
4000+ Facebook page engagements
1400+ Facebook video views
almost 100 entries in the $100 competition
30 entries in the art competition
100% positive feedback

At posting, there’s been over 1300 views of the documentary-style video that the Council for Intellectual Disability made during the festival.

It looks like popular demand will drive an Articulate Festival in 2019 and we are sure things will be bigger AND better.
Lastly thank you to everyone who helped out, and to the businesses that supported this community event. We <3 you very much.
