Water Works

The six community arts projects at the heart of Landlines & Watermarks

Six original new creative projects were commissioned from local artists who worked with hundreds of people from the flood-hit towns of the Calder Valley in a cultural celebration of their resilience and friendship. From July to September, the six ‘Water Works’ projects featured the stories and creativity of local people from Brighouse, Elland, Hebden Bridge, Mytholmroyd, Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden.
Each artwork had a watery theme and were created by local artists with local communities.  Together they resulted in a wave of free creative events across the valley throughout the Summer before transferring to the Piece Hall as part of a Peoples’ Fair at the end of September 2017.
