Introducing Bradford Producing Hub’s Creativity Council! The Creativity Council includes people from all kinds of backgrounds and experiences. A bit like a committee or a steering group, they:
Imagine how live performance and creativity can make Bradford a better place to live and work.
Create new ideas and talk about how these could work.
Help the project think about all the different communities in Bradford and what they want and need.
Talk about how things are going, what we should be doing more of, and what we should do differently.
Review applications for training and funding, and help select what the project should support.
Live music venues
There are many places one must visit – Cartwright Hall,NSMM, Brontes, Industrial Museum, Peace Museum, Bolton Abbey and Kala Sangam.
More of young people’s creative work, local artists creating collaborations with national and international artists, reviving the Festival etc.
Bradford ice rink. It’s as international as it gets.
Open-minded locals, and respect for emerging professionals.
Oooww that’s a good question. Firstly I could take them for a brew in Waterstones, the most beautiful book shop in the world. Then we would head to My Thai on Sunbridge Road for pad Thai and fish cakes, followed by walk around City Park to see the sights. Then a bus trip to Saltaire for walk by the canal and possibly a some refreshments at Fanny’s Ale House.
Free, inclusive events that help to break down barriers and create conversation.
Underground through the Beck, overground high above the skyline to Baildon Moor. Or if its raining to the 1in12 library
Outdoor performances (not street theatre).
The Peace Museum (of course), followed by NSMM, followed by an Omar’s Curry!
High quality big creative and cultural events that bring people together and use the big open spaces we have.
The moors and a nice meal somewhere on Leeds road after :D.
Free events for families and youth, events that are educating and engaging and fun.
I’d take them to Little Germany so they could see the architecture and begin to understand the Cities heritage
Definitely more art across the city centre, which reflects the mix of cultures we share.
If it’s sunny, the Cow and Calf rocks in Ilkley Moor. If it’s raining, the National Science and Media Museum
I’d like to see more companies and organisations investing in Bradford to create more opportunities for those that live here rather than expecting people to look down South
I would show them the old buildings around the Wool Exchange in the city centre with all their rich history next to the contemporary city park (hopefully a sunny day so we could splash around!). Then dry off at the top of the majestic Cow and Calf while sharing some of my school trip memories. Warming back up with a great Bradford curry.
More events, more gatherings and more sharing of stories.
I would take them to visit the scenic routes of Haworth, with a cup of dooth pathi (Pakistani tea) from Cha Cha Chai in hand. To end the day, I would also take them to experience the nightlife of Sunbridge Wells and the Wool Exchange.
I would love to see the arts and culture sector flourish, I would love to see all communities come together through art – not just in the city centre but throughout our community centres, institutions and community spaces.
I’d take them to Saltaire.
Creative arts by African/Caribbean artists.
I’d head up high to get the views of our city and wonderful countryside – maybe up Wrose Road to see the chimneys of Lister Mill. Then back down to the City via Undercliffe Cemetery in pursuit of a newly opened restaurant or curry house.
Funding – so that we can better share our beautiful and diverse city amongst all who are born and somehow end up making a home here.
Everywhere! Bradford has so much to offer!
