FlipSide Festival 2021

Following a hiatus due to Covid-19 in 2020, FlipSide returned in 2021 for a salon-style one day edition in the stimulating environs of Yew Tree Barn and Printroom Studio, a creative barn complex set among 15 acres of water meadows in the parish of Sweffling, Saxmundham, Suffolk.

Hosted by FlipSide curator Gareth Evans, acclaimed guests including Zakia Sewell, Andrew Kotting, Corinne Fowler, Patrick Wright, Chloe Dewe Mathews, Ken Worpole, Jini Reddy, Nina Migya-Powles, Ben Rivers and Micheal Pawlyn explored how the the pandemic and the ongoing ecological crisis, alongside significant political change in recent years, have raised profound questions about the 'nature' - in every sense - of the country we inhabit, and how we need / wish to think about our place within it. Albion has for centuries conjured a mythical, albeit changing, aspect of British identity, and our presentations offer a special focus on inclusion, history and co-existence, in assessing what kind of 'Albion' we might wish to see established in the coming years.
