The Brick Box are very happy to announce that we’ll be working with Emergency Exit Arts as a creative partner on their incredible Paper Peace project.

This UK-wide project will see a team of partners create collaborative events around the country in 2018 to commemorate the end of WW1.

Funded by Arts Council England, we’ll be working with five regional partners, and particularly with young artists aged 18-25.

The regional partners are:

Creative Scene, Batley; City Arts, Nottingham; Vivacity & Jumped Up Theatre, Peterborough; B-Arts, Stoke-On-Trent; Articulture, Aberystwyth, Wales.

The work will include outdoor performances, poetry, paper sculptures, projections and pyrotechnics, and some of the work created by these partnerships in the regions will tour the country.

We’ll bring more news as the project develops, but we’re looking forward to being part of this fantastic project alongside Artistic Director, Orit Azaz; Poet and Visual Artist, Robert Montgomery;?and Associate Director of Participation, Chloe Osborne.

We’re very happy to be able to welcome some new neighbours to our building in Ivegate, Bradford city centre.

Speakers’ Corner is a new social space which was set up by some of the dynamic women who took part in the Women of the World Festival in November last year.

They’re a friendly and welcoming group who care very deeply about helping other people and their city, and continuing the wonderful, positive energy the Women of the World festival brought to Bradford.

Everyone is very welcome to attend all the Speakers’ Corner events, it’s not just for the girls, and they’ll be using the downstairs space at Ivegate for all kinds of entertainment, discussion and get-togethers.

You can read a bit more about them in this news story on the Telegraph and Argus website, and follow their events by liking them on Facebook.
