A new website devoted to the Get Angela Carter Festival has now gone live. “The Get Angela Carter festival celebrates Angela Carter’s Bristol connections around the 25th anniversary of her death and draws together various activities and events happening in Bristol and beyond”. There are many exciting events taking place over the next couple of months, including the Strange Worlds Exhibition (10 Dec – 19 Mar) and the Fireworks Conference (9-10 Jan).
The festival website is curated by Dr Charlotte Crofts (Associate Professor in Filmmaking) and Dr Marie Mulvey-Roberts (Associate Professor in English Literature) both based at The University of the West of England, UWE Bristol. As they write on the About section of the website:
“The aims of the festival are to acknowledge Bristol’s contribution to Angela Carter’s development as a writer, to foreground her subversive and de-mythologising project and to develop new audiences for her work.”
