Westside Arts Festival 2013 poster imageThe Westside Arts Festival is a community based event which aims to promote and celebrate the spirit and people of Westside through the arts. It aims to bring local people together by showcasing art and a range of educational activities in local community spaces.

The Festival has always had a very strong community focus and this year our central theme is ‘Growing Our Community’. Westside is now a well-established residential area and we are actively promoting the principle of caring for all age groups, from the young to the old, who live side-by-side in our community.

This year's programme includes an amazing range of events and workshops celebrating the creativity of local writers, artists and craftspeople. Activities will include arts & crafts, storytelling, music, flower arranging, patchwork quilting, gardening and face painting to name but a few! There will be something for all age groups and all festival activities are free of charge.

The Westside Arts Festival committee would like to thank all of those individuals and organisations who have helped to make the festival possible. And, a very special 'thank you' also to our wonderful community volunteers.

Finally, we would like to thank the local community in Westside and all the community groups, artists, performers, poets, storytellers and facilitators for making this a magical celebration. We hope you enjoy your community festival.
