What is Otherworld?

Otherworld is a new festival of night-time events – Lates – at museums, galleries and historic houses. The two-night festival will launch in London on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 September 2019.

Otherworld aims to inspire new generations to fall in love with museums by turning expectations of what museums are like, and who they are for, upside-down.

The festival will involve creative programming at 50 venues across 5 areas of London that will give a platform for other voices, other views and other ways of doing things. It will match spoken word artists, musicians, performers, comics, DJs, gamers and more with iconic and unusual venues across the city.

What do the Otherworld Audience Advisors do?

The Otherworld Audience Advisors are a group of people aged 18-30, living in London, who are helping to shape the festival. The purpose of these Audience Advisors is to ensure that the festival is created with and for its target audience – young Londoners and their communities.

Supported by Culture24, this group is contributing to key decisions during the planning process, sharing views, ideas and suggestions – from event suggestions to ideas about design and branding.

Being an Otherworld Audience Advisor is an 8-month voluntary commitment from January – September 2019, involving attending a minimum of five meetings, with discussion focused on key areas of festival planning and evaluation.

Being an Otherworld Audience Advisor is a practical opportunity to:

  • Contribute to an exciting new project involving cultural organisations across London
  • Shape key decisions
  • Learn how a festival is produced
  • Develop communication and teamwork skills
  • Build relationships with arts professionals and creatives
