Recent weeks world events have caused a ripple of local, national and international gatherings. People unite in acts of solidarity across the globe. We know this isn’t the first, nor will it be the last time! It’s called ‘activism’ – but what does this really mean?

Wur Bradford art collective is excited to be launching a new action research project documenting and creating artistic responses, opening up space to dialogue, re-think, and find alternative ways to go about changing our changing world whatever this means to us, from our point of view.


You are invited to POWER UP! and to get involved with us in doing, talking and learning together, through live projects, collaborative art works, events, conversations, play and more. There will be opportunities to get involved in person and online.


The project is based in Bradford and will run throughout 2017.
