After matching last year’s record turnout of 80,000 visitors across the festival weekend (and braving an ever-so-slightly scary early downpour), Africa Oyé would like to thank all their funders, sponsors and partners who helped make the event such a runaway success in 2015
Artistic Director, Paul Duhaney extended his personal thanks to everyone who supported the festival this year.“From the continued support of Arts Council England and Liverpool City Council, all the way through our fantastic partners and sponsors, and of course to our amazing audience and their donations, I’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to the Oyé Family this year” he said. “With everyone’s support we can continue to deliver the biggest and best festival possible that remains free and open for all.”
The festival has also published an online survey to gather feedback on this year’s event. If you were in attendance, please take 5 minutes to supply the organisers with your views and any suggestions for future festival: Go to Survey
**Oye supporters can also help keep the event free using the festival’s text donation service via ‘JustGiving’ by Vodafone. Just text ‘DYYV03’ then the amount you are donating to 70070 via any UK mobile phone (usual SMS network charges apply)**
Supported by the Arts Council through its National Lottery funded Grants for the arts programme & by Liverpool City Council.
Arts Council England champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people’s lives. We support a range of activities across the arts, museums and libraries – from theatre to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and crafts to collections. Great art and culture inspires us, brings us together and teaches us about ourselves and the world around us. In short, it makes life better. Between 2015 and 2018, we plan to invest £1.1 billion of public money from government and an estimated £700 million from the National Lottery to help create these experiences for as many people as possible across the country. www.artscouncil.org.uk
