As part of their Festival 250, they’ve been exploring the historic role of print in public discourse in a project called Posters Pamphlets & Other Paraphernalia. Led by two artists, Hester Stefan Chillingworth and Salome Wagaine, they present some of the project’s outputs as part of the Festival 250 programme.
Ad/Dressing the City
Sunday 1 – Tuesday 31 May
In the early days of the Festival, city shopkeepers would dress their windows to celebrate the Festival’s return. This year, they revive that tradition! They have commissioned 10 Norfolk artists to create a window display for independent businesses in Norwich for May 2022, celebrating Norwich’s creativity and creating a Festival buzz across the city.
