The theme of our stand is ‘Stuart Semple’s Superheroes’ and is a tribute to the everyday ‘superheroes’ in our lives such as parents, grandparents, friends and pets. The theme also fits with the work of DCF and the support we provide for the smaller local charities and community groups often run by ‘superhero’ volunteers who have selflessly dedicated their lives to supporting others.
Activities available from the Stuart Semple’s Superheroes stand, located in Field 2, include superhero magic board writing, medal and mask making sessions. Stuart has also created a limited edition ‘reddest red’ powder paint which will also be available from the stand.
Stuart himself will be attending the festival and running some of the sessions on Saturday 28th July. He explained: ‘I’m very excited to be involved in this initiative which will inspire kids to recognise and reflect on the superheroes in their lives and also raise donations for Dorset Community Foundation, a local charity that does amazing work to support people in need across the county.’
Internationally recognised local artist Stuart was honoured by the UN with a Happiness Hero medal in recognition for his ‘HappyCloud’ performance from Tate Modern in London in 2013. He finds joy in bringing people together through art.
Stuart is also the founder of Culture Hustle – the world’s fastest growing art materials brand. Stuart will be coming down with his team from Culture Hustle and they are all excited to show everyone at Camp Bestival the colourist colours including his signature pinkest pink!
Cash raised from the activities and the powder paint will support the Foundation.
