UK Now festival
The UK Now Festival took place between April and November 2012 in 17 cities across China and was the largest festival of its kind. It included a range of headline events from the UK's leading companies and institutions, as well as smaller, innovative arts work and capacity building projects. The programme was wide ranging and inclusive, proving the UK's commitment to excellence, access, and diversity (including disability) in the arts, with projects across the arts forms from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
This film gives an overview of UK Now and focuses on just a few of the examples of UK arts and organisations featured during the festival and the impact of taking part in this ambitious project.
