This innovative arts programme will bring a series of art interventions to the town centre.
It forms part of our Dewsbury Blueprint plans to honour the heritage of the town, build on recent investments and revitalise the town centre.
The programme's main aim is to enhance the town through permanent, and temporary art in public spaces, focusing on six key themes:
- Fabric of Place
- Playful Spaces
- Nurturing Creativity
- Young Innovators
- Creative Thinkers
- Reconnecting the Town
The initiative also provides a unique platform for both emerging and established artists to be creative in the public realm.
