The Great Create Festival of the Arts Greenway 2011
Call for entries now closed

The award winning forth Great Create Festival of the Arts will take place at the popular National Trust’s Greenway in August 2011. It is one of the area's true public celebrations of the artistic talent hidden within Devon. The Great Create was founded by artist and curator Emma Carter with one specific goal in mind: to give exceptional emerging and established artists of all disciplines a showcase to celebrate and promote their creativity to the public and their peers alike.
Building upon the legacy and reputation that the Great Create has built over the years, we now invite artists to submit entries to the Great Create. The 2011 festival will see stately sculpture showcased next to conceptual pieces and poets next to paintings in a bid to expose diverse audiences to multi art forms in a relaxed and informal, but professional way. Exhibits range from the majestic and obvious to the subtle but poignant pieces, sometimes abstract, sometimes figurative. We will select and represent contemporary British art, sculpture, installations and performances from approximately 80 of the regions finest practitioners.
The festivals have been an inspiration to over 250,000 Greenway visitors that have viewed and participated. Situated with a stunning backdrop of Greenway, the festival offers an interesting insight into current art trends within the cultural community. Greenway is situated down river from Dartmouth at Agatha Christie’s former holiday home set in the glorious woodland estate
