Dismaland Model Village Comes To New Mills for Festival Big Weekend

Didn't make it to Banksy's Dismaland when it took over a corner of Weston-super-Mare in the summer? Fear not, because a slice of the bemusement park has made it to New Mills, in the form of the Aftermath Dislocation Principle — a model village with a difference…
As part of New Mills Festival’s Art Trail 2016, New Mills has been chosen as one of the locations for Jimmy Cauty’s stunning installation work, “The Aftermath Dislocation Principle” (ADP).
Recently displayed at Banksy’s Dismaland the work is now housed in a 40 ft shipping container on the back of a 30-tonne haulage truck ready to start an epic journey zig-zagging across the country stopping at sites of historic riots in the UK. The ADP will be on display in New Mills from the 19-26 September, its arrival and departure timed to coincide with New Mills Festival Art Trail Big Weekend and Lantern Procession Finale 23-25 September.

If you would like to take part in New Mills Festival Art Trail 2016, submissions are now being taken and will close at midnight 15th May 2016. Artists from across the UK are eligible to take part.
