Dickies Support HAVAGO Festival

Dickies Support HAVAGO Festival

Dickies, the internationally renowned workwear brand, is supporting the first 'Havago' Festival which is going to take place at the Forum, in the centre of Norwich on the 18th and 19th August. 
 
The event is a celebration of creative skills and a platform for a truly diverse group of artists and craftspeople from around Norfolk to showcase their work together and inspire others to be creative and “have a go”.
 
There will be more than forty different creative participants showing their work and offering the public a free of charge opportunity to try their hand, whilst encouraging and supporting students and new graduates with the chance to showcase their work for the first time and gain experience of engaging with the public.
 
Alison Atkins and Cordelia Spalding, artist and arts educators said: “We have contacted 12 local schools and colleges with regards to a competition where the children will be given a set of decorators overalls to transform and capture the theme and creative nature of the ‘Havago’ Festival. We want to give them a blank canvas and allow the children to creatively go to town to decorate and redesign their own set of bib and braces.  We will then show the resulting transformations in a fashion show during the Festival. They are all very interested to take part, especially as many will be having their arts activities taking place at the end of this term.”

Dickies are donating 12 Dickies painters’ bib and brace sets specifically designed for painting and decorating. With clip straps making it easy to get on and off, it features an angled chest pocket as well as a very large front pouch, which is perfect for storing your brushes and other essentials.
