Power Up: Creative Resistance

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 a first, nor will it be the last time! It’s called ‘activism’ – but what does this really mean?
Wur Bradford is very excited to launch 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!

The project will be based in Bradford and will be running throughout 2017. There will be lots of opportunities to get involved through live projects, actions, dialogue and more, both in person and online.
