Hello Junction Lovers

It's hard to believe that Junction Arts Festival wrapped up only a month ago. What an incredible event it was! 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to you, our audience, who made the Festival come alive. We can't wait to see what adventures unfold next time.

Over the coming months we'll keep you informed of the behind the scenes at Junction HQ, share lots of images taken by the Photo Mob at the Festival as well as our 2014 Festival Impact Report results.
