Social event welcomes artists from across Bradford

Tuesday night was the Bradford Visual Arts Social run by Bradford Producing Hub. This time it was held at Keighley Creative and what an honour it was!

The event was a great success with lots of positive feedback. Attendees came from across the district to meet other artists, social, network and hear more about opportunities for creatives in our local area.

The focus of the event was on local and national support organisations for visual artists and they explained more about what they do and how they can help. The organisations included ourselves, Bradford Producing Hub, Yorkshire and Humber Visual Arts Network, Axis Web, Curator Space and Keighley Photo Hub.

We shared wonderful food together courtesy of Caterpillar Catering alongside taking part in some creative activities run by one of our studio artists, Carole Griffiths. Attendees got a tour of our building, seeing our artist studios and enjoying the comfort of the fabulous Stockroom Cinema.

Building our Future! Keighley Towns Fund

Many of you may remember that back in 2021 we heard of our success in securing £2.6 million to buy and renovate an existing town-centre building so we have a permanent home in Keighley. This has been made possible through Keighley Towns Fund https://www.ourtownkeighley.co.uk/

This funding makes it possible to create an accessible and exciting Hub focussed on how we live, work and play through arts and culture, designed with, by and for our local communities.
