Angie Bual

Creative Director at Trigger

This event has happened

Angie Bual is Creative Director of Trigger; shapeshifting creatives who dream-up, create and produce bold and brave live and digital events that interrupt daily life, reimagine and revive public spaces, and put audiences and togetherness at the heart of everything they do.

Angie is also the Creative Director of award-winning outdoor arts event The Hatchling which will lead the Queens Platinum Jubilee this June, and PoliNations, an epic new outdoor art festival commissioned as part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK and presented as part of Birmingham 2022 Festival.

In this talk, Angie will be talking all things PoliNations – a stunning multi-artform project created in response to the toppling of Colston’s statue, greening cities, and gardening. This is an extra-ordinary visual arts installation, performance, and light and sound experience. It involves mass participation, local voices, big ideas, giant architectural trees, nature, garden design, costume, spectacle, and live performance, and is a space to reflect and celebrate diversity.

Stemming from the simple fact that around 80% of plants found in UK-city gardens originated overseas, this project will launch in Edinburgh and then take over Victoria Square in Birmingham from Friday 2 to Sunday 18 September 2022. PoliNations is free to attend and everyone is invited! Find out more about the project at
