Rio Carnival Quest – Bath

ArtReach is coordinating an exciting carnival procession in Bath city centre on Saturday 25th August (2-3.30pm) as part of the Paralympics Flame Event.

Working with our partner Mandinga Arts and local community groups in Bath (Gateway Centre), Keynsham (at St John’s Church), Radstock (St Peter’s Church) and Peasedown (Youth Centre) we are creating six costumed sections to support the procession of the Paralympics Flame through Bath (click on link above for map)

 

Over 100 local people will be taking part, including a section of disabled youngsters riding on adapted bikes (Wheels for All). Six talented Bath and Bristol based artists have been engaged to work with local groups in creating and animating costumes for a parade which is themed to the handover of the Olympics baton to Rio for 2016.
