Creativity In Calderdale

Free Creative Sessions

Many of you expressed an interest in being part of follow up events after the Landlines and Watermarks - Big Weekend, (Calderland and The People’s Fair); as part of the legacy of the project we have put together two exciting events specifically to encourage local creative collaborations going forward beyond the project. It will be a great way to continue the conversations started during the project and to start new ones.

We are holding two sessions in central Halifax and hope you will join us. Open to artists, arts organisations and community groups with an interest in working with partners in a creative way. You can come to one or both of the sessions and they are free!

Creativity In Calderdale - Opportunities and Networking
13 December 2017 – 9.15am – 12.30pm Orange Box, 1 Blackledge, Halifax HX1 1AF

In this session we will look at what you can do to engage creatively with each other across Calderdale. You will work in groups and define what you think is needed to develop the creative offer to the communities of Calderdale. There will also be an ‘open mic’ slot where you can pitch project ideas and ask for prospective partners to come and talk to you in the networking slot at the end.

Creativity In Calderdale - Collaboration, Strategy and Funding
Tues 16 January 2018 - 9.15am – 12.30pm Cornerstone Room, Square Chapel, 10 Square Rd, Halifax HX1 1QG

In this session we will take a look at what collaboration actually entails; defining roles and contracts and maintaining the relationships you develop. Strategy and funding what do you want to do? Strategically how does the project benefit you and the wider community? ‘Who is it for?’ How can I fund it?
