Three main and one fringe commissions from the AltPitch Festival in 2021 were determined by the audience rating.
The year 2021 of the festival is largely an experiment designed to try completely new ways of working with artists and audiences. So far it has been a success, thanks to you!

EDGELAND focuses on four points of interest in and around the Bulverhithe seaside walkway train depo and industrial estate. The people that live there, work there and pass through it. This is explored primarily through sound. Active listening allows us to connect to a sense of place, as well as baring witness to spaces & sounds that can be overlooked.
