For most of its 27-year history, Hebden Bridge Arts Festival has delivered an annual summer programme of events comprising headline touring artists from across the spectrum and coproducing with local creatives.
In recent years, the organisation has been keen to grow towards year-round community-based work. Now, in 2021, following a fallow year to review and develop our future, we have made the move to transition Hebden Bridge Arts Festival to a socially engaged programme of activity, providing collaboration and participation in the arts.
Currently, Project Manager Clare Danon is leading on our latest venture 'Creative Neighbourhoods' which brings together world-class artists with groups across Calderdale to creatively explore common themes.
Furthermore, by the end of 2021 a new Creative Producer will be on hand to manage an ambitious new artistic strategy to stage creative events, happenings, exhibitions and productions for local audiences and visitors to relish.
We're grateful to receive the generous support from Arts Council England, Calderdale Council, Hebden Royd Town Council and Art Fund for our 'Creative Neighbourhoods' Project to continue throughout 2021/2022.
We'd like to say a huge thank-you for this financial boost which will help us produce quality art, develop creative skills, celebrate our local area, and promote positive community connections. #CreativeMemories
