Established in 2018 and inspired by eccentric genius Richard Booth, the self-proclaimed King of Hay, Kingdom Project is the community based arm of Lavish. Set up by Ami Cadillac to create Art for Change, Kingdom Project is curated by some of most respected names in music and the arts.
Working out of a tiny Art House in Hay-On-Wye – the ‘Flaming Lady Of Hay’ – Kingdom Project is run and produced by a core female group of Hay based arts and event professionals who believe that high calibre, diverse arts should be accessible to everyone.
Our inaugural project ‘A Jaunt Through the Kingdom’ took place in Hay-On-Wye in 2018 and since then our life changing projects have reached audiences across the UK and as far as Ghana in West Africa. Our supporters include Festival Republic, Africa Women’s Development Fund, The Ashley Foundation, Community Foundation of Wales, The Hay on Wye Town Council and the Welsh Arts Council.
The Kingdom Projects impacts the lives of the artists, participants and audiences involved, some in ways that are quite literally, life changing. Don’t just take our word for it, watch the video below or find out more by visiting the Kingdom Project website here: www.kingdomproject.co.uk
