Cheeky Fest is an arts
community & festival
We love art, dance, education, fashion, film, music, opera, photography, poetry, startups & theatre
Cheeky Fest is for creatives, performers, entrepreneurs, people who aren’t earning enough money through their passion to support themselves (& their families) so have a Day Job or are Unemployed & claiming (Universal Credit), have had / continue to have mental and/or physical health challenges, are still finding how they fit into society, may not have a great work history, haven’t had the opportunities to develop or apply the skills & passion they have.
Cheeky Fest is an arts community-festival connecting people through art, business, dance, drawing, education, entrepreneurship, fashion, film, installation, music, opera, performance, poetry, social media, startups, theatre and/or video.
A beautiful, bold, bright, collaborative, colourful, creative, daring, dramatic, dynamic, educational, empowering, encouraging, engaging, enthralling, ear/eye opening, expressive, inspiring, international, invigorating, joyous, participatory, public, progressive, reflective, social, thought-provoking year-round community focused on / culminating and growing through an annual Festival.
Cultural and creative boundaries are met, shared & challenged between international artists and viewers / audience / participants alike. The experience gathers a complexity of, and multiple approaches to art practices and tests conventional definitions of fine art and creative & performing arts.
Platform for & investment in arts Startups @CheekyVentures - share ideas & connect with potential partners, clients & customers.
