Meet the Green Festival artists!

Community & Education
Don’t miss the chance to meet the PECT Green Festival artists and hear the stories behind their works! There will be a special ‘Meet the Artists’ Festival Fringe Event on Wednesday 17th August, 6pm-8pm, at Allia Future Business Centre (PE2 8AL).

Join a ‘behind the scenes’ talk from the Green Festival commissioned artists, made possible by Arts Council England and Travelchoice. Find out what they did, why they did it and what’s next! This is a free event, and drinks and nibbles are provided.

Seven artists have been commissioned to transform Peterborough city centre into a showcase for environmental art at this year’s PECT Green Festival, which returns with a Launch Day on Saturday 13th August.

From a three-metre long papier-mâché stag beetle to an origami boat walking trail, the artworks promise to spark debate about sustainable living and encourage residents to take positive action for the local and global environment.

Organised by the charity Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT), the Festival brings together community groups, charities and businesses in an annual celebration of ‘green’ initiatives in the city. The Festival aims to encourage local people to live sustainably and develop long term behaviour change, by exploring themes such as sustainable transport, recycling, local and sustainable food and biodiversity..
