Imag­ineFX fes­ti­val?

ImagineFX - - Imaginenation -

I’m re­ally ex­cited about the up­com­ing art fes­ti­vals this year. Hav­ing been to the past two IFCCs [In­de­pen­dent Fes­ti­val of Creation] in Croa­tia, I learnt so much from the artists there, but also got su­per-in­spired from meet­ing so many bud­ding artists, like me, who want to do this for a liv­ing some day.

Any­way, my ques­tion is, why doesn’t Imag­ineFX do an art fes­ti­val? I’d go! Liz Bel­loway, via email Claire replies Good ques­tion, Liz, and this is some­thing that we’ve talked about, and pushed for, for many years. The short an­swer is that there’s no guar­an­teed money in it (I know, bru­tal, but true). The slightly longer an­swer is, Imag­ineFX is a healthy, but rel­a­tively small mag­a­zine in the pretty big com­pany (Fu­ture). It is, ul­ti­mately, out of our hands – though like I say, we’ve made it clear that we’d be in­ter­ested in stag­ing a Lon­don­based art event un­der the Imag­ineFX ban­ner. Also, we’re a team con­sist­ing of just three of­fice staff, so if we were to take this on, we’d might need a hol­i­day to re­cover from the ex­pe­ri­ence!
