Emily Wood (Artistic Director of Cabasa Carnival Arts) was commissioned by The Civic Arts Centre in Oswaldtwistle as lead artist on ‘Weather or Not! Festival’. Weather or Not! was a creative outdoor festival in Oswaldtwistle that combined music, dance, visual arts and community arts over the space of two weeks in March/April 2013. Specifically designed to function regardless of the elements, events consisted of weather related street theatre and art workshops. Cabasa, designed over 100 bespoke umbrellas representing 5 different weather types, which were lavishly decorated by a team of artists and volunteers. They were carried by families from the local community in a parade, which culminated in the ‘umbrella promenade performance’ featuring local primary and secondary school children.
