What is Wur Bradford?
Wur Bradford is a grassroots art and social space in a market stall in Kirkgate Market to explore how we can make our city and our world better through imagination and collective action. The project was started by artist Jean McEwan in Spring 2015 and now has expanded to be run by a small collective of Bradford artists who are interested in how art can change the world.
Wur Bradford is an open space for people to come and chat, get creative, share stories and ideas, and connect with others. Everyone is welcome to visit, get involved and suggest things that could happen. To get an idea of the space, some of the people who have been involved with us, and some of the activities we have done, you can watch a short video about Wur Bradford, made in late 2015 here or watch the slideshow below of that show some of our activities over the last 2 years.. we have done everything from creative workshops to bannermaking to art parties to self publishing fairs to helping to organise actions and vigils. We do things in our market stall space and in other spaces across Bradford. We work with lots of people, groups and organisations in Bradford, and have done activities for events with Brickbox, Bradford Refugee Week, WowBradford festival and many other others. We are always looking to connect with more people – so get in touch if you would like to work with us.
We are delighted to be launching Power Up Creative Resistance, a new action research project documenting and creating artistic responses, opening up space to dialogue, re-think, and find alternative ways to go about changing our changing world whatever this means to us, from our point of view. The project, supported by CommUNIty Thinkspace group at University of Bradford and Joseph Rowntree Foundation, begins in March and will be running throughout 2017. If you would like to get involved with Power Up, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
