Od Arts Festival 2020: Alone with Everybody

Od Arts Festival takes its name from the Od: a crooked stream that meanders through the villages of East and West Coker.

In 2020, with the guiding theme of ‘Alone with Everybody’, the festival will explore loneliness – what it is, how we experience it, where it comes from, and how it might be addressed.

24 artists and collectives will playfully probe different aspects of isolation, and ask us to consider how it might be liberating as well as difficult to be alone.

Over one weekend in May, expect new and specially-sited exhibitions, performances, screenings and events to pop up in cafes, halls, houses, chapels and fields.

Come and join in the three day art festival, spanning two villages in rural Somerset.

“It was a really exciting, unusual event – proves that not all good things happen in big cities!”
