27th - 29th September
Through the 2019 programming strand, Mind Matter, the aim is to explore and challenge current attitudes towards mental health and spark conversations through artwork and installations inspired or influenced by mental health issues and experiences.
Arts by the Sea is focused on delivering a packed and fun filled festival celebration, while shining a light on mental health and breaking down some social barriers surrounding it. The weekend will consist of an explosion of art with many fantastic events taking place throughout the town which everyone can be involved in. The festival is delivered by Bournemouth Borough Council with the support of the Arts Council England and aims to provide inclusive and accessible events across a range of disciplines, most of which will be free and unrestricted to attend so there definitely will be something for everyone to enjoy.
