HIJACK HALLOWEEN 2017

 

Halloween started as a celebration to see people through the long winter. People told fortunes, shared fires, remembered loved ones and welcomed the spirits and fairies who visited their homes on the day when harvest ended and winter began.

 

The Hijack Tool Kit gives you all the activities to create your own, unique and alternative celebration.

 

 

About the project

 

Using the origins of Halloween as inspiration Hijack commissioned artist Davina Drummond to create a package of entertaining and delicious activities designed to give you an alternative to fancy dressed, sugar coated trick-or-treating.

 

Hijack producer Emily Coleman says ‘we wanted to create a new and interesting way for children and families to experience Halloween. We’ve worked with Davina and designer Woody to create a handbook full of creative activities which is kept inside a bespoke Hijack Halloween tin along with the materials to help you make things for an alternative celebration. People can come along to workshops at Komedia, the event in Bevendean or simply buy a Tool Kit to use at home. Maybe families will Hijack Halloween this year and make it an annual tradition for years to come.

 

Hijack Halloween is a pilot project for a new direction of work for the organisation exploring how we commission brilliant artists to respond to themes and big ideas to make creative events and workshops which can take place in a variety of different places. This project has taken place in an arts venue, community space and schools. If you’re an arts organisation or school interested in hearing more about our plans for future Hijack projects please watch the film below and get in touch.
