ANIMATE Festival 2012

Welcome to the world of ANIMATE 2012 where your Winter is about to be turned upside down. This season will see the streets of Kingston brought to life with a new festival commissioned by Creative Youth. ANIMATE 2012’s aim is to bring vibrancy and creativity to the centre of town at a time when it is dark and cold. Through a teasing programme of dance, theatre, music, puppetry, film, sculpture, circus art, projection and lighting installation, you will see the lost spaces of Kingston become found in an intriguing trail that runs right through the heart of it. ANIMATE will put light in the darkness, warmth into the cold and breathe energy into the sleeping places.
Funded by the GLA, ANIMATE and Creative Youth are working with young artists to increase the footfall into the centre of Kingston. We are planning to work closely with local shops and businesses to make sure that they reap the benefits of this in a time when the traditional British High-Street is struggling.
