The programme is an opportunity to take stock of the past and to take forward new ideas and investment that will lead to the festival’s consolidation both nationally and internationally.

Colour has long been a point of investigation for Hella Jongerius (b. 1963), whose designs reject traditional styles in favour of a bespoke and indefinite finish.
