What others are saying

During the time that Art8 has existed as a festival, we have met some great people along the way. Here's what some of them have to say about their Art8 experience

  • We have seen the Art8 festival go from a standing start to one of the most important art festivals in Cornwall in just a few short years. We talk to festival organisers all over Cornwall and the people involved with Art8 are amongst the most passionate and hard working. Art8 is a gem of a festival and I hope it can be supported by us all in the years to come.

    FEAST Cornwall
  • Art8 have worked hard to develop their following within the town over the last few years. Newquay BID is delighted to support them again this year as they work to bring a diverse and multi-channel art offering to the town. This year will see our help and support move on to the BID sponsoring specific events during the festival. We are therefore more than pleased to be able to help Art8 bring some of the best family focused entertainment that Cornwall has to offer to our home town.
