PRESS RELEASE: ANNOUNCING MEDWAY PRINT FESTIVAL - MPF20 LOCKDOWN 6 - 21 JUNE
The 5th Medway Print Festival was poised to bring you 47 events in 15 Medway venues this June. Sadly we have had to cancel these face to face activities this year. But fear not Print Fans! Thanks to fantastic support from Medway Council Arts Development, the team have developed an exciting online festival #mpf20lockdown and will be bringing you a host of online print treats from Medway and beyond across social media and our shiny new website throughout 6-21 June.
Talented Medway artists and the MPF team are busy creating video demos, live how to's, features and conversations encompassing all things print. There’s something for everyone, from printing with kitchen cupboard items and family activities, to discussions with artists, features on makers, a look at forthcoming and past print shows including this years Dickens 150 Print Open Call (taking place at Rochester Art Gallery when it reopens) and a guide to a host of print techniques.
We are delighted to have so many of our regular contributing artists and venues on board and would like to thank them for helping us to make this happen.
We are inviting the public, families and children as well as more amateur and more experienced printmakers to join in the event and create their own prints and tag them during the festival using #mpf20lockdown So whether to you make potato prints or lithographs we'd love you to share your prints with us!
