DISRUPT is a new online arts festival that will run for two days: 8 and 9 July.
Co-produced by Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Barbican, in partnership with Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance, Culture Mile, Lived Experience Network, Maya Productions and Slung Low, it offers pay-what-you-can tickets for its whole programme of events, chosen by a panel of community artists from open call submissions.
The festival has a focus on youth and community-led pieces, emergent practices and skills development and comprises talks, filmed performance, films, panel discussions, workshops and a podcast.
DISRUPT will run on 8 and 9 July from 11AM to 4PM.
