Medway Print Festival 2021!

June 1st – June 30th

MPF21 is happening!

We are delighted to share, that after so much uncertainty for all of us, MPF21 our 6th Medway Print Festival IS going ahead thanks to funding from Medway Council’s Culture Team.

We are taking a flexible approach to this years event, which will be a combination of online content as well as we hope some live actual exhibitions and events.

We have decided, just for this year, to extend the event from its usual fortnight to run throughout June from 1st – 30th. This enables us to give our contributing organisations more time to participate and we hope as a result the Festival will include a greater number of events, including some for the half term week and we hope to also offer an online gallery for local printmakers to showcase their work.

We will not be producing our usual pink printed brochure as we appreciate dates and details may change at short notice, so to remain responsive, for this year it will be promoted online, and we will be improving our website listings too.

If you are a printmaker or run an organisation or venue in Medway or the surrounding area and would like to take part please do get in touch and let us know about any real or virtual print based exhibitions, workshops, courses, talks or opportunities you would like us to share. We welcome new participating organisations and venues so please do pass this on to anyone you think might like to take part.

Watch this space for more inky information as the Festival takes shape.
