Pestival Productions: Bringing the natural world to you and your work…
“If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.” E.O. Wilson, renowned biologist and thinker.
Bespoke Art and Design
Pestival can create bespoke art pieces which align with the brand, brand values and target audiences of corporate sponsors, whilst integrating science, sustainability, design and biomimicry in a highly aesthetic and interactive way.
Pestival has wide-ranging experience in creating art with an ecological message which has a high media impact and draws in new and diverse audiences.
The Termite Pavilion (on the right), created by Pestival in 2009 with award-winning architects Softroom, was an instant success, generating media coverage both in mainstream media (including The Times, The Guardian and The Telegraph) and specialized publications such as AD, Icon Magazine, etc.
The BBC even presented the weather forecast from inside the pavilion!
The art pieces can be large or small scale and could tour or reside at the corporate sponsor’s head office.
Workshops and talks
Pestival can organize inspirational talks and/or run day-long workshops for the corporate sponsor’s organization.
World-renowned scientists and designers will demonstrate how to make an organisation happier, more harmonious and more efficient by learning from natural systems.
Arts and Ecology Events
Pestival can advise on structuring and curating bespoke arts and ecology events promoted by the corporate sponsors.

Pestival @ ZSL London Zoo draws on a wide network of artists, designers and scientists to create unique events.
Rupert Soar, Freeform Engineering: “I want to pass on my deep felt gratitude and some of the emotions I’ve experienced over the last few days. I’ve never encountered such an immediate and public thirst for information as Pestival and the Pavilion generated. I have many beautiful stories of encounters with people who passed through and went away with a tale to tell, a slightly different take on the world and I would even say a reassessment of humanities position within nature. A small sense of wonderment and awe tempered with a thrill that humanity is learning about nature again.”
Malcolm Shirley Ceng. Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851: “The media coverage you attracted was phenomenal and indeed I copied the picture in The Times and included it in my report to Commissioners at their meeting last week! I am really glad that we took a bit of punt with supporting Pestival, which initially looked a bit wacky for us but has really paid off – and delivered too. Well done."
