The latest Bradford Stories Festival activity

Poetry and performance workshops

Students from three Bradford primary schools came to the Cartwright Hall for a series of workshops and performance building activities! Students built up their poetry, literacy and performances skills in an amazing venue with lots of inspirational items connected to Bradford, its people and history.

Students took part in a series of activities including breakdancing with freestyle dancer Lloyd Thomas, performance poetry with poet, Sharena Lee Satti, and painting with artist Michael Umoudit.

Photography workshops

More than 60 primary school children from Bradford took part in photography workshops at the National Science and Media Museum, as part of our Bradford Stories Festival.

The pupils, who came from six Bradford schools, learnt how photography can be used as a powerful tool to tell a story and express their feelings. The children also became young historians, thinking about how the history of people and places can shape a community, and be captured and shared through photographs.

Youth Tree workshops

Primary school children have been taking part in fantastic creative workshops at Kala Sangam and the National Science and Media Museum.

Local artist Mo Rahman led the pupils through activities to help them learn about and value each other’s families, heritage, culture and traditions. They also discussed their own heroes, hobbies, and what is most important to them.

The children came together to create and paint combined ‘Youth Trees’ featuring the themes that came out of their activities such as family, friendship, home and heritage.

The launch

We launched the brand new Bradford Stories Festival as our Bradford Literacy Hub celebrates five years improving life chances through literacy.

Over 150 school children and members of the wider community in Bradford came together to celebrate the launch of the Bradford Stories Festival at Kala Sangam Arts Centre on Thursday 10 October.
