Nova Festival will have a crazy, arty golf course

The anti-poverty charity ActionAid has enlisted the help of some of Britain’s top artists, including Jake Chapman and David Shrigley, to create a unique, interactive art installation to raise money to help fight poverty.

Adventureland Golf, compiled by Doug Fishbone, takes place at Nova Festival from July 5 to 9, and is the product of a team of some of Britain’s best loved and most innovative artists who have come together design the nation’s first bespoke art mini golf course. Artists participating include: Jake Chapman, David Shrigley, Gary Webb, Ian Monroe, Peter Fowler, Brian Griffiths, Zatorski and Zatorski and Jonathan Allen.

ActionAid volunteers will be manning the course, while fundraising to help reconstruction efforts in Haiti. Although little is known about the course, it promises to showcase the skills of the artists involved and amaze all who see it. ActionAid will be running the course, using the opportunity to inform festival-goers of the problems in Haiti and fundraising on behalf of the charity’s efforts in the country.
