Brainchild Festival

Welcome to Brainchild! We are a grassroots, not-for-profit organisation celebrating the power of community, creativity & DIY culture.

We love making artistic projects that promote vibrant, full & honest expression, where we can lift each other up, find joy, inspiration, make new friends and connect on common ground. 

Over the best part of a decade, we’ve supported more than 2,000 young & emerging artists with our parties, gigs & scratch nights, residencies, art commissions and mostly with our independent, award-winning multi-arts festival.

We are currently on hiatus: taking a pause for breath, reflecting on our work and reimagining the next chapter. To hear from us when we’re back, please sign up below.
