Right now the team at EAFS are restructuring, redeveloping, and finalizing the programme for this year’s reimagined festival titled ‘EAFS Off Grid’.

shellMore information will be available very soon! In the meantime, let us tell you what we’re all about, or alternatively you can visit us on Facebook

“Over the last year the EAFS team have been developing an ethos and series of themes which aim to create a thoughtful festival which engages people with the land and helps people navigate through issues relating to climate change and the future of our landscape and environment in a playful and engaging way.

The EAFS team ran a future thinking event in Dumfries and Galloway back in January and had over 50 artists from Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, and visiting International artists, all who are working at the cutting edge of practice.

Out of this conversation has emerged the ideas, themes and content for this year’s festival. Strong core festival themes for the 2015 Off Grid EAFS are “Inventiveness, foolishness and generosity as a way of understanding the world”.

This year, we are also working on the EAFS Recharge project, an initiative to get young people to re-engage with their natural environment. For more on Recharge, check out the Facebook page

EAFS Off Grid is a two day environmental art festival based at the dramatically located Morton Castle, in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. The Off Grid festival will use the arts, journeys, and hospitality to reveal the world around us. Walks will be carefully curated to take people into the surrounding landscape where they will be surprised and intrigued by art installations and sensory experiences inspired by the festival themes and the stunning landscape of the Galloway and South Ayrshire biosphere. There will also be the opportunity to participate in imaginative and stimulating conversations around the fireside in the evening.

Through the delivery of this exciting festival we are encouraging the world to disconnect, reconnect, and redirect our future.
