D.verCity Arts Festival
on Miller Park
D.verCity, the Deaf and Disability Arts Festival (supported by Arts Council England and Preston City Council) offered Guild week a unique showcase of arts, from poetry, music and dance around the city.
We caught up with them in the beautifully decorate Speigel tent on Miller Park, where they welcomed Liverspool's 'DaDaFest' along, to showcase some international talent.
Globally renowned musician and disability activist Johnny Crescendo lit up the stage in the afternoon, with performances from rock band 'The Beathovens', poet Roger Cliffe-Thompson and the Soltau Dance workshop, filling out the bill amongst others.
Besides what was going on on Miller Part, D.vercity held 4 exhibitions around the city during Guild week. Venues including the Arts and Media Centre, the Harris Gallery and Pukar played host to events and participatory arts sessions such as "Blind With Camera", "The Universal Stare" and the "The Art of Freedom", offering people a chance to get involved and try their hand at some art of their own.
