Creative Kirklees newsletter


Here is the latest Creative Kirklees newsletter for my followers to look at and there seems to be someone familiar mentioned:

Creative Kirklees

 

Creative Kirklees Newsletter - 12 May 2015

 
Do you have a story to tell about Creative Kirklees; a collaboration made, an event visited or an opportunity spotted?  Creative Kirklees will be one year old on 30 May and we’d like to hear some stories of those of you who use it, whether as an artist, creative business or audience.  Tell us how you use the site, what your story is and send a quote for our press release.  Please email arts.creativity@kirklees.gov.uk by Tuesday 19 May.
Creative activities are continuing to flow this weekend with a variety of things to do and see. Shepley Spring Festival is running from Friday to Sunday, celebrating the very best of traditional music, song and dance. Also, on Friday evening, South Asian Arts Company, Mansamitra bring Shivoham, a unique musical experience to Huddersfield Art Gallery.
If you fancy learning a new creative skill, why not look into Globe Arts’ 6 week fused glass course - alternatively they are running various visual art courses and classes throughout the summer which might tempt you.
And, to give you notice, after great success last year, The Grand Northern Ukulele Festival returns to Huddersfield from Friday 22 May to Sunday 24 May.
Oh and don’t forget if you have a creative event or project that requires funding, the Kirklees Community Events and Arts in the Neighbourhood Funds are currently open for applications.
The above is just a taster of what is happening - there are many more creative activities and opportunities going on – take a look at Creative Kirklees now.
