Luminous Birds - Kathy Hinde Small

This years theme was ‘Transformation’ reflecting the radical changes happening in the town centre over the next two years. Funding was been secured from Arts Council England, The Elmley Foundation, Rewyre, Worcestershire County Council, and the Xpressions Leisure Grant Scheme. 

We launched our Small Scale Commissions Scheme again this year and sought artists to come forward with proposals. We also launched the Great Comberton Hill Paste Up and found local photographers to contribute images to be included in the project.

We would like to thank the Big Print Shop for supporting this project. 

We also worked with Kidderminster Academy Level 3 Diploma in Art and Design students who created design concepts for this years brochure.  Callum Bosbury who came up with the winning design worked with Citizen Media to create a print ready brochure. 

If you feel like you would like to get involved in any capacity then please email, we are always excited to hear from anyone that cares about the festival as much as we do!

Luminous Birds by Kathy Hine saw Vicar Street have its own beautiful flock of birds throughout the 2015 festival. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane. KAF saw your origami bird fill Kidderminster Town Hall, all with your wishes, hopes and prayers for the future hidden inside them.

To make a bird, follow instructions via the YouTube tutorial: search ‘Kathy Hinde Origami Bird Instruction Video’ or visit or download the instructions as a pdf. All you need to make one is white paper (feel free to recycle paper you no longer need), a pair of scissors and a flat surface.
