Our mission at Stendhal is to establish ourselves as an innovative promoter of the arts. We believe passionately that creativity is the seed of innovation and that by establishing an event open to all, Stendhal Festival of Art can help encourage creativity so that it can act as a driver towards a more positive landscape for tomorrows innovators.
Limavady’s Stendhal Festival of Art was voted as Ireland’s Best Small Festival for the year 2013 at the annual Irish Festival Awards.
Project Director of the festival, Ross Parkhill says that the whole team is thrilled to have been recognised alongside such illustrious events. “It is brilliant to have everyone’s hard work recognised in this manner, we have a huge team of volunteers who give us so much to bring the festival to life every summer, so a massive thank you to everyone on Team Stendhal. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for us, we are humbled by your support.”
Our vision is to drive growth in arts participation and the many beneficial outcomes this can bring to individuals and communities, facilitate a greater creative base and thus develop innovation in the region, broadening opportunity for tomorrow’s generation. We wish to not only promote the arts but a more collaborative approach toward sustainable social enterprise with long term benefits to many.
