About Photoworks Festival: From Little Acorns…

Photoworks Festival returns with our Festival in a Box. From Little Acorns… is a unique, limited-edition object; a portable festival that invites you to become its curator.

From Little Acorns…takes Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower (1993), a dystopian climate fiction novel, set in the not-so-distant future of the 2020s, as inspiration and as a starting point to think about how and who can shape the future. FromLittle Acorns… presents ten international contemporary artists including Mohamad Abdouni, Antony Cairns, Felicity Hammond, Josèfa Ntjam, Johny Pitts, Ebun Sodipo, Harit Srikhao, Diana Tamane, Anshika Varma and Charlotte Yonga.

Each Festival in a Box contains the work of ten artists: 18 posters, 10 labels, and a wall text that can be interpreted, adapted, and installed in many different forms. There is a wall label for each artist, giving you more information about them and their work. Also included is a booklet of extended texts and essays written by Julia Bunnemann, Ricardo Reverón Blanco, Jade E. Bradford, and Shoair Mavlian.

The box is made for artists, curators, and enthusiasts; for creatives, collectives, clubs and communities to build on and stage their own photography festival.  Each of the artworks can be installed on your own walls: at home, in your office, in a gallery, in your classroom or with your community. There are an infinite amount of ways in which you can install the festival. Use nails, tape or clips to hang in your preferred space.

We have a limited number of boxes available for those who wish to take part but don’t have the financial means. Get in touch and we are happy to help.
