This year’s festival theme is asking us what it means to be human, inspired in part by the work of the renowned South African artist William Kentridge, whose short animated film Other Faces will be the centre-piece of the main exhibition in our new gallery space in Boscombe. Alongside the animated film, audiences can expect a thought provoking and reflective programme of new work from 40 commissioned artists who despite the pandemic have continued to produce their work for the festival. There will be over 150 events happening across the festival week ranging from independent film screenings, to live performances and exhibitions and a full programme of workshops, talks and family friendly events both in person and online. BEAF’s curated exhibition 2B Human is featured in their contemporary arts space Boscombe Arts Depot (BAD) and this opens prior to the festival from 29 May. Featuring art, photography, film, video, sculpture and interactive digital work, this will be their opening exhibition to what is planned for a year round programme. BAD will become the hub for the festival, providing a new arts cinema, a theatre and workshop space.” 26 June - 4 July: BOURNEMOUTH. gotbeaf.co.uk . ‘GALLERY ARTISTS’ 1 May - 30 June Gallery On The Square, Queen Mother Square, DORCHESTER, DT1 3BL.
