What We Do

An insight to the idea behind the festival.



``The seed of innovation``

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 will act as a driver toward a more positive landscape for tomorrows innovators.



``Opportunity for tomorrow’s generation``

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. Stendhal Festival Ltd is a constituted not for profit vehicle with ambitions of becoming a Co-operative. As possibly the first stakeholder owned festival of its type we wish to not only promote the arts but a more collaborative approach toward sustainable social enterprise with long term benefits to many.
