Festival plan

  1. 1. International Festival <br />July 2011<br />Cranford Community College<br />
  2. 2. Artistic Policy<br />What is the purpose and concept behind our festival?<br />This festival is an international arts festival which brings the local community together.<br />The purpose of this festival is to share Cranford’s talent with our communities as it is an international festival. The whole idea of this festival is so that everyone comes together and share each others culture as well as their talents.<br />What are the requirements that will drive decisions made?<br />This festival is based around the 2012 Olympics which are being held in London next year. This inspires the festival to have acts which involves different talents from different cultures and countries which reflect that this is an international event. As this is an Arts festival we want to engage our target in a range of different performances including dancing, singing, bands and acting.<br />Written by ParnyanIslamzadhe<br />

  7. 7. Staging Layout and Dimensions<br />We are aiming for the stage to be about 8m by 3.5m and for it to be in front of the line of trees in front of the Concert Hall. We will cover the fences of the picnic area to provide a safe secure place to store equipment and a place for performs to warm up. <br />This leaves about 5 meters for the mats and walkway. <br />I believe there is a suitable power supply from the concert hall to power the sound equipment. We will provide matts for people to sit on but they may use a chair if they have one. We must make sure there is a suitable walkway for the public which has yet to be agreed.<br />How much space do we need to leave for walkers by?<br />How close to the 8m by 3.5 m stage can we have?<br />Written by George Streather <br />
  8. 8. Canopy<br />8m<br />Stage Plan - Layout<br />5m<br />Mats<br />8m<br />Stage<br />3.5m<br />22m<br />2.8m<br />4m<br />2m<br />Storage<br />Sides of fence covered to protect equipment<br />8m<br />Concert Hall – Overnight storage<br />
  9. 9. Sound Requirements<br />We don’t need an excess amount of equipment but the basics are: Speakers, Microphone's, Mixer, Amplifier, Power cable, CD player.<br />We are trying to get a DJ who will play music between acts and run any music the acts require.<br />At the moment we are unsure as to the type of acts we are going to have so equipment will need to be in ‘reachable’ distance all day.<br />I don’t think there is a cost involved in using the equipment as I believe we are using the school equipment. This is yet to be confirmed.<br />Where are we allowed to position the speakers?<br />Written by George Streather<br />

(e.g where should acts sit when they are waiting? Do they have rehearsal time? When will outcomes be announced?)<br />At the beginning of auditions Marie will say “welcome to Cranford festival auditions, you are excepted to come on stage when your name or the name of the act is called and to stand ready and begin once your track is on or when we give you a queue to start. The green room is where you will wait and rehearse if you want during the whole time in the green room which will be DR2 or sit and wait patiently and when your act Is due on stage we will come in and call you.<br />During the whole of Auditions we would like you to stay in the green room(DR2) at all times unless asked for, if you need to leave for example to go toilet check with us first as your act might be next and respect all other acts and keep the noise down as it may disrupt people performing. Once auditions have finished we will ell you the following day which of you will perform at the festival, from their we will see how we can improve your act or just keep it the same.<br />Written by Sara Khan<br />
