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.

If you would like to read more about how our future hub and festival will benefit Keighley, here you go, free to download:

More news will follow at the end of the month… watch this space!

Welcome to Javed Bashir!

Javed has joined our team as Keighley Creative’s new Cultural Heritage and Diversity Lead. He has a rich and varied career to date working to support community cohesion; building inter-faith partnerships; doing lots of work helping up-skill organisations about their Safeguarding practices; as well as helping Supplementary Schools to make sure they have all the guidance they need to thrive.

Although Javed has lived in Keighley for most of his live, much of his work has seen him work Regionally and Nationally, and so this is his opportunity to bring his knowledge home and help make sure that we’re putting on a great mix of events and opportunities for all our communities.

P.S. We are also going to give Javed some drawing lessons… Because he joked about it at interview, and now we want to make that happen 🙂
