The School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Huddersfield is inviting everyone to join them in celebrating people, places and culture, this June.
‘Cultures of Place’ is a celebratory showcase of exhibitions, installations, performances, workshops, podcasts, talks and discussions about place.
The events will be based all across Huddersfield from the 24th of June to the 4th of July.
The School of Arts and Humanities, in collaboration with Temporary Contemporary and Kirklees Council, is inviting people to take part in a range of projects drawing on research taking place now by academic staff and postgraduate research students.
All the projects within this programme present different creative and cultural engagements with place across the subject areas of art, architecture, creative writing, cultural studies, graphic design, English literature, fashion, film, history, media, music, performance, photography and textiles.
Hosted across three sites; Queensgate campus (University of Huddersfield), Queensgate Indoor Market and The Piazza, the programme of activities aims to present many different exchanges and engagements with local arts and cultural organisations, community groups, existing cultural institutions in Huddersfield and many of the place-based initiatives in the area such as Temporary Contemporary, Year of Music 2023, WOVEN in Kirklees, Huddersfield Literature Festival and the Children’s Biennale.
The school says the projects presented have been brought together to deepen our understanding of place and to connect with the exciting research taking place within the School of Arts and Humanities.
