#HERE I AM 
Till 5 June 2020

The Artworks is inviting EVERYONE in Calderdale to take part in a wonderful art project to celebrate Calderdale becoming a Valley of Sanctuary. Wherever you are from, whatever communities you are part of, take part by making something about YOU – a picture, a poem, a song, a story – and sending it to the Artworks before the 5th June. Submissions received will be brought together and turned into a series of beautiful creative responses shared during Refugee Week 15-20 June, including:
  • An audio visual collage by Artworks
  • A live theatre performance from Stand and Be Counted
  • A live artwork at The Piece Hall
This project was created with input from writer Emma Decent and artist Harriet Lawton. For more information please see #HERE I AM
