About the festival


Festival of Audacity makes Birmingham the stage for brave and audacious activist  art.


Driven by the belief that art should be brought to the people, the festival programme doesn't take place in exclusive venues, but in everyday spaces like National Express buses, New Street  Station, and Rotunda Square, Bullring.


Members of the public get the chance to experience for free, a multidisciplinary arts festival programme, which contains theatre, spoken word, installation art, dance, VR, film, music, interactive workshops and more.


Festival of Audacity is brought to you by Free Radical, an art activism platform which is part of  the Beatfreeks Collective.


At a time of political uncertainty, activist art is needed to unite communities by turning suffering and injustice into hope and power.


In addition to platforming engaging artists for the main programme, the Festival will celebrate Hip-Hop and activism with an incredible Afterparty headlined by Lowkey, "arguably the biggest name on the UK hip-hop  underground scene" (The Guardian).
