About Our Biennale
From September - November 2018 Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Phoenix Dance Theatre, Musica Kirklees, Chol Theatre, Manasamitra, The Children’s Art School and independent artists collaborated with 1,900 students in 18 schools and colleges in Kirklees, West Yorkshire. They helped them create their very own remarkable pieces of dance, music, animation, poetry, art and drama, all based on the theme Darkness and Light.
The incredible pieces were performed and exhibited at Our Biennale’s Big Draw & Play Day on 10th November 2018, Manasamitra’s Dark Skies on 10th November 2018, Untroubled Light // Melt on 20th November 2018, the Biennale Finale on 20th November 2018 and at The Great Kirklees Railway Exhibition along the Penistone Line.
What's Happening Now?
Our Biennale 2018 may be over, but we still support arts and cultural events happening around Kirklees that young people and children can go to or get involved in. Take a look on our What's On pages to find out what's happening.
If you have an event suitable for families, children and young people happening in Kirklees, send the details and a good image to email@example.com. We'll pop it in our What's On section and share it on our social media channels too.
We hope to be back in 2020 to take more great artists and arts organisations back into schools and colleges to work with more children and young people. If you are interested in getting involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how.
