Rise Academy secure a bid to deliver a carnival of culture in a day!
Multicultural teenagers from the Rise Academy’s Learning Sanctuary together with the young people of Rise Academy (PRU) will organise and produce the Oak Road Festival.
The vision will bring the students together to create a carnival of cultural collaboration to celebrate the diversity of students within the City of Culture 2017.
The festival adopts the theme of freedom, which creates an awareness of the unexpected collaboration between young migrants and disadvantaged students. They will plan and produce the arts festival close to the Oak Road boathouse which led an avant-guard arts movement that challenged rules and promoted artistic creation.
The festival will host a display of music, arts, crafts and multicultural cuisine, around the beauty of the forgotten Oak Road Lake.
