Things are still in the planning stages, but . . .
- This year’s Arts Festival is 23rd June to 2nd July: http://hebdenbridgeartsfestival.co.uk/
- HB Open Studios is 7 - 9th July, so doesn’t overlap: https://hebdenbridgeopenstudios.org/
Open Studio applications usually need to be in around 20th Feb - £35 charge. I normally participate in this, as I’ve a studio at Artsmill, and propose to do so for 2017. Ideally, it would be good for BR to get involved, particularly as some of our neighbours at Hebble End will be, and visitors tend to do the rounds of whatever’s open. It would mean manning the space, at least over the weekend - is anyone interested?
I also plan to get involved in HB Arts Festival, and have a meeting with the Director on Friday. I’d like to use it as a way to promote BR, & recruit new members. The Festival would like to take over an empty building, if we can find one around then, and fill it with installations/ hands-on stuff etc. Maybe using our space at Hebble End could even be an option?
