The Artworks is inviting everyone in Calderdale to take part in a wonderful art project to celebrate Calderdale becoming a Valley of Sanctuary. Will You Join Us?
People of Calderdale, here we are. Wherever you’re from, whatever communities you’re part of, we are all united in being in the same place at this unique moment in time.
Who are you? What do you imagine? For yourself, this place, and the future?
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 by text or email – and join thousands of other contributions from across the valley. 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 and creative ideas on how to get involved please see #HERE I AM The Artworks
