Can/should art be useful? Should it fix or repair problems or issues?
Which ones?
What does useful art look like? What would you think of as a ‘useful’ art project?
What could a ‘useful’ art project be, here and now, where you are?


 

Join us at Wur Bradford for a Useful Art Party to come up ideas for ‘useful art’ projects. Bring along your ideas and generate more ideas with others with old skool party fun, games, activities and food.

We will vote on the best ones which we will take forward to a ‘Useful art Working Party’ on Thursday 31st August to make into proposals for projects, which will become part of the upcoming ‘ Full Scale’ exhibition at Gallery ll, University of Bradford, opening on September 21st.
‘The exhibition will open discussion about art as a tool for social change, the relationship between artists and audiences, and art’s place in a rapidly changing world. What is gained from exhibiting such projects together in a gallery as art? How might they be applied, activated or used otherwise? What would you like to see fixed or improved, and how could art help you to do that? As well as an exhibition space the gallery will be a space in which to collectively address such questions. A parallel programme of events, workshops and talks will be announced.’

We are excited to announce a new Bradford photography project, devised by our members Rob and Ben. The project, inspired by this very special old photo book of Bradford ‘Bradford Old and New’, will take you on a journey around Bradford giving you the opportunity to update and replicate images of Bradford from the past.

The project will be happening on Tuesday and led by Rob and Ben and other members of our Tuesday crew.
Meet them at Wur Bradford art space (stall in Kirkgate Market, opposite Home From Home Cafe) at 12pm every Tuesday  to then go and capture a contemporary image of a Bradford street from the book, like this one from Market Street.
This is an opportunity to get involved at the very beginning of an exciting new project  exploring Bradford past and present- who knows where it might take us!
All are welcome!
