Inspiring Creative Partnerships at Hay Festival

 We are popping up all over the place once again this year at Hay, with student performances, film, graphics, animation, illustration, workshops and demonstrations. Shakespeare has been a huge influence with students responding to his relevance 400 years on.

Thursday 26th May:ED Performing Arts will present an anarchic and rollicking pop-up Gambol through the site and Dance students will be flying through the air in Shakespeare inspired aerial performances.

31st May: BA (Hons) Illustration students are delivering workshops inspired by Roald Dahl's exquisite nonsense; they are already a sell-out, building on last year's success. Throughout the festival students will be demonstrating letterpress by the bookshop to engage the Hay audience with HCA. In addition students have created artwork for the site, you can't miss it, Andrew Graham's work is 8 meters long!

We have a strong digital presence at the Festival this year with HE animation, film and motion graphics commissioned by Hay for the British Council’s Shakespeare Lives project www.shakespearelives.org.

It is great see so many courses collaborating with Hay and we would really like to grow this partnership. If you would like to discuss how your students could get involved next year please contact Aine.
