Artsfest 2007

Yesterday the Canterbury Campus of the University of Kent saw another edition of the popular Artsfest. I was taking pictures for inQuire and tried to be everywhere at the same time: there were four stages hosting acts such as the Makeshift Minstrels, the UKC Dramatics, the UKC Concert Band and Big Band, and the winner of Keynestock, Elena Goulding. Students and families enjoyed a sunny day of entertainment, face-painting, food and drink, and, after 10pm, the ‘Big Bang’ – fireworks overlooking the Canterbury Cathedral. (As a photojournalist, I had to find out that even being persuasive doesn’t allow you to shoot from the library roof when nobody knows where the keys are.)

Show me the album!

    If you apply for a Rapture account through the computing dept you can have FTP access. Although I’m not sure if its only available to people doing computer science courses.

    haha I know people in that photo!! ^

    You wouldn’t believe how many people I spoke to and e-mailed to get access. No way, unless you’re studying a computer related subject.

    Great pictures. Looks like an event not to be missed.

    What’s the reason for blocking the FTP port? I’d get the whole port blocking thing if it were the Gnutella and BitTorrent ports (although that already annoyed me at my uni as I’m using torrents to download a lot of legal content) but it’s not as if people would use ftp to download illegal stuff?!

    […] 10 Aug 2008 at 04:51 pm // Returning from my summer break and with a slight delay I can finally post some photos I took during this year’s Artsfest at the University of Kent. Many thanks to Katie Van-Sanden and Tom Christian who supported me in my endeavour to gain permission from the university to photograph the fireworks from the Templeman Library rooftop.
