Official Facebook page for the John Hughes Arts Festival
2nd - 4th February 2018
Jesus College, Cambridge
The John Hughes Arts festival (JHAF) sprang from an email inviting undergraduate members of Jesus College to suggest ways to remember a beloved friend, teacher, priest, and son. It has since evolved to an inter-disciplinary annual festival celebrating the spirit of openness, spectacle, and collaboration many associate with John, and making art with it (preferably over a drink or two!)
This year the festival returns after the huge success of its augural year, which saw talks from Sir David Hare, and endorsements from Stephen Fry. This year's festival will launch with an Open Hang Gallery featuring a great range of art work submitted by students, artists, and friends of the College. Other events include a comedy smoker, a life drawing session and a tour of the College's expansive art and sculpture collection, as well as talks from special guests.
The John Hughes Arts Festival will take place from the 10th-12th February 2017 at Jesus College, Cambridge.
In fond memory of the late Dean of Chapel, the Revd Dr John Hughes.
