Friday 7 - Sunday 9 September 2018

at Dartington Hall, South Devon

Participate, attend and tune-in for a three-day festival of concourse and discourse celebrating the human-scaled, contemporary arts education of Dartington College of Arts since 1961.  

"My investment in this pilot event, ultimately, is to find new ways for the Dartington College of Arts alumni to return to the Estate and dream into our collaborative development as a community of artists, here and internationally."

- Sarah Gray, Organiser  

  • STREAM is a three day performance festival with a focus on sharing practice-led research as a hotbed for new and experimental pathways in art making.
  • STREAM will produce a live radio stream on Soundart Radio. 
  • STREAM is celebrating Dartington as a place for experimental living and progressive learning through offering opportunities for artists to return to the land to make and share work, ideas and lead experiences.
  • STREAM will be documented and will feed a new digital audio archive by Soundart Radio of radical dialogue, interviews, talks, performance and storytelling. 
  • We wish to connect internationally with our community and are exploring how we can form a valuable online forum of exchange for the Festival. 

B&B in Foxhole & Tent-Only Campsite available - Bookings and registration coming soon.

The purpose of this festival is to reunite the Dartington College of Arts community and to offer opportunities to share practice, research and experiences.  This event is part of the Dartington College of Arts reunion group.   

Topics of interest

The event centres in particular around the themes of creative freedom, experimentation and community.  

  • Memory: Forgetting and letting go
  • Learning through doing
  • Future of art provision in education
  • Family-friendly Arts for ages 0-16!


Of course, lots of little versions of us have been born since our time at Dartington. STREAM offers activities for little ones and older kids.

Why the call out?

In April 2018 we made a call out to gauge level and breadth of interest from alumni so we could better support participatory activity in the programme for September. Over 70 submissions were received and are currently being considered by Sarah Gray with support from the Advisory Curator Group composed of: -

  • Lucinda Guy - artistic director, Soundart Radio
  • Sue Smith - executive director, Dance in Devon
  • Sarah Middleton coordinator at Port Eliot Festival & producer, Boomtown Festival

More call outs may happen in the future, so watch this space and sign up for future newsletters.
