About Art8

Art8 Newquay's Arts & Culture Festival began back in 2011 when a group of Newquay artists saw a need for, and an opportunity to create, a platform for local artists to showcase their work. Newquay is a town full of creative people whose work should be celebrated, enter Art8! At Art8 we talk about artists in the broadest sense of the word - an artist could be a painter but they could also be a dancer, a poet, a musician, a sculptor...the list is endless!

Art8 gives local artists the platform they need to showcase their work and it gives the local community the chance to get involved with artistic and cultural activity that may not have been experienced in Newquay before. Art8 incorporates events, exhibitions and workshops spanning film, craft, poetry, dance, photography, theatre, music, literature and more.

This year the festival in May (May 1st - 4th 2015) will focus on visual art and photography exhibitions and then once a month throughout the summer there will be other Art8 offerings and activities for the community to get involved with.
