Southbank Centre presents Festival of the World

Southbank Centre presents Festival of the World open through 9 September 2012.

As London welcomes the world this summer, Southbank Centre‟s three-month long Festival of the World with MasterCard brings together inspirational projects from the UK and around the world, which showcase the power of the arts to change the lives of individuals, communities and whole societies. More than 4,000 artists, poets, writers and performers from 195 countries will take part in hundreds of events, many of which are free, and each with an international flavour. At the heart of the Festival experience is the Festival of the World Museum in the Royal Festival Hall, which examines the many ways in which art can be a powerful agent for social change through a series of immersive and interactive environments. For the duration of the Festival, Southbank Centre‟s 21-acre site is transformed with a vibrant outdoor landscape, featuring art installations, the Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden, pop-up restaurants and weekly food markets.
