A very merry Christmas to all our friends!
What a year!
From the darkest days of despair, when we thought Liberty Arts could no longer continue, to the new friends and supporters we have met this year. From Theatre Boxes, to film making. From Bags of creativity to working with The Jane Goodall Institute, it's been a rollercoaster of year! A huge thankyou to all who have supported and stood by us. We WILL return in person in 2021, stronger, wiser and more determined than ever.
With love and best wishes,
The Liberty Arts Yorkshire team xx
Even though we're unable to meet in person, we've been very busy reaching out to the community with various projects. To see more about what we got up to in lockdown #1, click on the 'community' tab above. Here's a peek of our most recent and current projects.
Culture is Our Plan
As part of Bradford City Council's ten year cultural strategy 'Culture is Our Plan', we were commissioned to research what culture means is rural areas of Bradford. We created a film form our findings. To watch, click here:
STEM Theatre in a Box
We are thrilled to announce we have been successful in receiving funding to develop 'STEM Theatre in a Box'. Building on the success of our original Theatre in a Box, we are working with a local primary school teacher to focus on, and promote science capital in young children through puppets, play and theatre. Focusing on female and BAME scientists, each box will contain everything needed to create your own puppet theatre, a summary of the scientist's story and work, a specially filmed DVD and a small 'kitchen sink' experiment. We are also excited to be working with The National Science and Media Museum, Bradford on this project. For more information, get in touch by clicking the link below.
The Jane Goodall Institute UK
One of the scientists we are featuring in our STEM Theatre in a Box is Jane Goodall, DBE. Primatologist, conservationist, humanitarian and UN ambassador for Peace. We are delighted that The Jane Goodall Institute UK has fully endorsed the project and providing many resources for the 'Jane' boxes.
