The Wolds Collective is a non-profit making voluntary organisation, formed in 1996 to produce a weekend Arts Festival/Solstice Celebration, focusing on a community audience and encouraging the creative use of reclaimed and restored resources. We called it EcoFest.
The Wolds Collective has established links with numerous agencies including Arts Council England, Community Champions, Soundlincs, Access to Music, Louth Arts Partnership and many more, to help with funding and creative management, allowing the festival to develop and grow into a major annual summer event.
Working with other Community-based Arts Organisations, the EcoFest provides an opportunity for people of all ages (and abilities) to participate in workshops in a variety of art forms: Dance (Latin & Arabic), Capoeira, Drumming (Samba & African), Musical Instrument Making, Song Writing and other skills. There are also all-day Arts & crafts Workshops and activities for children.
We’re having a year off, so there won’t be any festivals in 2014. However, keep watching this space for events in 2015, when we plan to resume the Small World Music Festival.
