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.
Stay in the loop
Our next chapter could have so many forms, new festival, new venue, new projects, new events — any of the above. When we’re ready to begin or announce any of this, we know we want the core Brainchild community to be there & be the first to know about it.
We want to take things old-school so you can get a text when we’ve got something cool in the pipeline that you could come to or get involved with. We’re making a special new mailing list for this too. Why should the algorithm be the one to decide if you see our posts?!
So if you’re with us, please give your email or your mobile too to join this new era! Sending love & looking forward to our next happenings in 2023.
