In the warm up to this years Party in the Park a series of promotional and fund raising events have been lined up by this years party protagonists. Such great success in 2014 has propelled the ambition for this year, not least to raise the modest development and production cash needed with a kickstarter appeal. (where is that?)
Minesweeper collective will be instrumental in the print and promotional aspects of the event. They already hold screen printing workshops on Tuesday and Thursdays and are set to run next PITP craft workshop on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14st June and then monthly. Get yourself an introduction to the screen print process and print a few of your existing garments with PITP 2015 artwork. Back at the Birdsnest you can see exhibitions of their print and sculpture work. Here is a review by Yoshizen!
Madcap coalition have completed the move to storage and workspace on Norman Road and will begin preparing the series of community enclosures, tents and stages needed. Planning meetings for this years festival are being held on Mondays 6pm at NXL. Funding is needed for Generators, Toilets and Tenting and the call for volunteers will be made shortly.
— After all the careful preparation work, difficulties on the planning side of the festival forced cancellation at last minute but plans are already underway to ensure smooth running of PITPNXD FOR 2016 —
