KARVAN: video and gallery

KARVAN at The Big Feast, UK 2015

We booked the KARVAN because we were looking for something that people could take time out of their day to experience something new. Something which was intimate but could take places in a public space. We were also looking for something that could bring books to life…providing people a new experience with literature. The KARVAN proved to be a great example of a project that could do all of what we were looking for and proved really popular at The Big Feast. The feedback we received from the public was great and our community decision-makers we meet still talk about KARVAN fondly as an experience they won’t forget. KARVAN was such a special experience, and brought the world to our event so much so, that when we were working with our community group, Burslem Jubilee Project, for another event they asked for its return. I would gladly consider KARVAN for our events again in the future.
