Artsfest 2021

This year marks the seventh year of Artsfest hosted by the university. Traditionally we join with cultural venues across the region to programme a variety of events including live performances, workshops, theatre shows, music, poetry, art exhibitions, and lots more to get involved with. 

We invite an eclectic range of new and established artists both locally and further afield, to use Artsfest as a platform to enhance their careers. This is something that we are proud to support and will endeavour to do in the future, using Artsfest as a vehicle to continue to bring you the very best this region has to offer. As a result of Covid-19 we weren't able to do this in 2020 but are planning a return this autumn. 

However, during the pandemic we have brought art to you as a series of online artist talks. This has been so popular we have made it a permanent programme which will now run throughout the year in addition to our traditional arts festival. It is encouraging that something so positive has happened as a result of the pandemic and it proves more than ever that art is important to our well-being. 

Our winter programme will resume in January, plus in February we will be celebrating LGBT+ History Month with an additional programme of events so please keep checking our website for updates or alternatively follow us on Instagram www.instagram.com/wlvartsfest 

You can also catch up with with any talks you may have missed by scrolling down to the 'Recorded Events' section of this page or go to the University of Wolverhampton YouTube channel where you will find lots of other creative and inspiring videos to watch including our recent Black History Month events >> UoW YouTube ChannelUoW Black History Month.

Hope you enjoy!
