Redruth was once the richest town in the world. The monetary wealth has all but gone but it’s still one of the richest towns we know, full of amazing buildings, a rich history and a dynamic, unique community. For 2016, the Inland team plan to embark upon The Future Project; exploring some of the ways these foundations can be built upon to imagine possible and impossible futures.
Bringing together art, environment, architecture, music, performance and heritage, The Future Project will be a platform for weird and wonderful future visions. Inland will commission new works, show art that explores utopian ideas and creates space for communities to come together; developing ideas through collaboration and conversation.
We’ll be sticking to the same structure; project funds for local art organisations, an open call for artists selected by a top panel, a curated selection of exciting contemporary work, film screenings, talks, workshops and interactive art in a range of interesting locations in the heart of Redruth.
Inland Art Festival is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
