This project was funded on 20 Dec 2021!

This free community festival will combine Latin American music, dance, entertainment and other cultural activities to highlight the multi-cultural nature of Latin America, Sefton Borough and the wider City region, allowing the expression of individuals’ and communities’ cultural identity in accordance with their human rights. Our festival will provide an opportunity for the public, including people from the local area not usually involved in cultural events in the town centre, to participate.

What we'll deliver:

  • A showcase of live Latin American music and dance performances from local national & world class Latin artists.
  • Latin dance classes for the community as part of the festival

Why it's a great idea:

• Highlight Sefton and wider City region’s Common cultural heritage, its integration into a world system and shared cultural identity of multicultural and multi-faith communities. • Ensure the participation of diverse communities. • Build bridges of understanding for more meaningful interaction and cooperation across cultures. • Unify local community groups on the common ground of Cultural Rights, to encourage future collaboration between people of diverse cultures and faiths. • Raise awareness of global challenges to provide an opportunity for school & community education and participation. • Stimulate interest in The Atkinson, Southport Eco Centre and National Museums& their contribution to human rights and environment. • Build on the Legacy of Sefton Borough of Culture 2020 by stimulating cultural interaction and cooperation within the wider City Region. • Strengthen Southport’s International reputation as a Coastal Resort and Community committed to cultural heritage & environment.

Steps to get it done:

  • Confirm Technical and Health & Safety Arrangements
  • Obtain necessary insurance and music licences
  • Create website , marketing strategy and begin promotion
  • Network with schools, community groups
  • Gather Artist and Speaker bios and Arrange for newspaper press and radio features
  • Draw up festival schedule /Programme and liaise with artists
  • Train and prepare volunteer staff

We're excited to announce that Viva Latinfest and the International Slavery Museum are also planning to jointly prepare a cultural rights exhibition along Lord Street or the Promenade to encourage festival-goers and local residents alike to reflect on the theme of cultural heritage and identity. We are also welcoming local traders, craft groups and community groups to showcase their products, and are encouraging local venues to support the festival with themed after parties offering more chances to showcase local artists. Please follow our page for updates! In future years Fiestaval proposes to incorporate an International Conference on Cultural Rights or Environment alongside the festival to coincide with the UNESCO World Day for Cultural Diversity and Development on 21st May or World Environment Day. *We will continue to be guided by safety considerations. In the event of needing to reschedule the festival due to COVID, we will communicate this via our Spacehive page.*
