Inside Out Dorset Festival
Inside Out Dorset, the biennial international arts festival, returns this autumn to transform five extraordinary locations with art and performances outdoors that celebrate the county’s sense of place. Running over two weekends from 17 to 26 September, Inside Out Dorset is hosted by
Dorchester-based outdoor arts producer Activate. Central to the programme are themes of sustainability, land use and lifecycles, human and environmental, as well as an on-going commitment to break down barriers and open the free-to-attend festival events to the widest possible audience.
Postponed from last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival has commissioned three world premieres including Partnering With Earth, a performance poetry installation at the Symondsbury Estate near Bridport on 24-26 September.
We aim to make our festival as accessible as possible and list Access information on each event page.
