The Parklife Weekender has announced it will continue to support artistic talent via the Parklife Billboard Arts Campaign.
Building on last year’s Arts Fund initiative, 2014’s campaign offers budding artists the chance to reach a huge audience via extra large Parklife Billboards located across the whole of Manchester. The theme for the designs will be ‘From the Centre of the Earth to the Outer Edge of Space’, and with no limits to which medium is used, entrants are encouraged to think outside the box! For full information visit the Parklife Billboard page. Limited Sunday tickets are still available from £49.50, for tickets visit The Parklife Weekender website.
In 2013 Parklife welcomed the first ever Mad Ferret’s Parklife Arts Fund, which saw 16 art collectives, production designers and festival enthusiasts picked from 1,500 entries design and install various art installations around the festival sight. Continuing to champion local and national artists, Parklife is giving artistic talent the once in a life time chance to ‘paper the city’ of Manchester. The winner will also receive VIP tickets to the festivals and the runners up with have their designs displayed on the Parklife website. The Campaign is open to those of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and can be created in any medium possible.
