OPP OF THE DAY: Do Fest Friends – CoLab Dudley

Do Fest Dudley is a 3-day open festival curated by CoLab Dudley inviting the people of the town to get involved in some hands on doing and making. Do Fest Dudley 2021 will be an adventure to discover new kinds of doing, creating and making that unlock our imaginations.

The full programme is online at: https://dudleyhighstreet.uk/do-fest/ 

Do Fest Friends
We’re on the hunt for Do Fest Friends; folk who could help out for a couple of hours on Fri 30 or Sat 31 July to support our Time Rebels*. Do Fest Friends are people who have a welcoming smile, who notice what is happening around them, and are happy to help each other.

There are loads of different ways that people can help, from welcoming participants, starting conversations, taking photos, making videos, sketching/drawing, recording observations, being general helping hands and more. We very much want people who live locally to the town to both take part and help out. Obviously we can cover volunteer expenses (travel, care, food if a full day) for Do Fest Friends within the borough. 

*What are Time Rebels?

Our relationship with the High Street is changing. Shops are closing and leaving empty spaces behind. With our High Street in decline how might we begin to change it and how might we make a kinder and more creative High Street?

Since the start of the year a group of Time Rebels have been researching ideas around the future of Dudley. Do Fest offers you the opportunity to join in to find out more about their ideas and help shape the High Street of the future.

What would you like to see? Would you like to join the Dudley Time Rebellion?
