Putting the Fun Back Into Festival Organising
Festivals and events are generally set up by enthusiasts – people who want to build the thing they love, whether its music, food, knitting or rabbit lovers.
After a number of years, festival organisers often feel trapped by their own creation, its too good to stop but it becomes inexorable and the next one is always on the horizon. This makes innovation difficult and repetition easy as new ideas become difficult to find.
Jigsaw Festivals offers short term or ongoing consultancy support to festival organisers to develop new ideas, new funding streams and generally to provide ‘new eyes’ to review and evolve how the festival works and where it is going. Having an experienced ‘sounding board’ can give event organisers a huge amount of relief and help them see the wood for the trees.
