We are delighted to announce WE ARE HERE, a new project in the city’s Oastler Market celebrating it’s unique history, communities and stories. Wur Bradford artists Chemaine Cooke and Jean McEwan will be working with market traders, members of the public and BCB community radio  to tell the stories of the Market and its people through guided walks, printed ‘zines and sound. The project will culminate in a free two day event ‘We Are Here Party in the Market’ in April, featuring a BCB radio broadcast, alongside poetry readings, live music, art exhibition and print goodies. There will also be an exhibition of the project at Kala Sangam arts centre from April to June.

Interested in the project and want to know more or get involved? Got stories or memories about Oastler you want to share? Chemaine and Jean would love to hear from you. You can get in touch with us via our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/wurbradford or drop us an email at wurbradford@gmail.com

We’ll be announcing details of our first guided walks very soon – watch this space!

WE ARE HERE is supported by Arts Council England, Bradford Council, Bradford Markets and University of Bradford
