Our Biennale 2020

Our Biennale is a festival of arts and culture made with children and young people in Kirklees. Throughout the festival, artists, composers, choreographers, musicians, writers, DJs and theatre producers work with schools and colleges to enable children and young people to make their very own remarkable pieces of dance, music, art and drama.

🏡 We're putting the final touches to Our Place - our window exhibition for the finale of Our Biennale.

Schoolchildren from Whitcliffe Mount, Field Lane, and Pentlands have been creating models of their favourite places (real and imagined) and writing about why that place is so important to them.

Let us know you're coming to see their work: https://www.facebook.com/events/2616920695275275
The Piazza Shopping Centre in Huddersfield town centre is set to be taken over by sculptures, music, sound walks, dance, artwork, films, and photographs displayed throughout empty shopping units.

🏡 We're getting so excited for Our Place, our window exhibition of model houses, landmarks, and imaged places for the finale of Our Biennale 18 - 20 June - here's a teaser, created by a Year 9 student at Whitcliffe Mount.

Are you planning to drop by? Let us know ➡️ https://www.facebook.com/events/2616920695275275
We've had a brilliant day at Pioneer House, Dewsbury, working with Woven in Kirklees, Children's Art School and Our Biennale running free arts and crafts workshops. We’ve made textile characters and bags and yarn from old tshirts! A fab way to spend time together as a family.

Look out for other activities coming soon!
This week The Childrens Art School have lots of creative activities for children and families for Our Biennale in Huddersfield and Holmfirth! These sessions are inspired by the Joana Vasconcelos exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park and pieces made will contribute to wonderful collaborative art pieces! My session is Friday afternoon at Maker World in Piazza Shopping Centre, Huddersfield! There’s lots of sessions, all prebookable via eventbrite. See the Children’s Art School for more info!
🏠 If you wander up Daisy Hill in Dewsbury town centre from 18 - 20 June, you'll glimpse Our Place through one of the shop windows.

A miniature town of the places we've missed over the past year - our friends' houses, rugby stadiums, libraries, and museums - this window exhibition has been created by schoolchildren around Dewsbury and Batley.

Here are some of the early designs from students at Whitcliffe Mount - don't they look great?
