Are you a storyteller, musician or performance artist based and/or working primarily in Dewsbury / Kirklees? Would you like to take part in an exciting new project working with local communities to talk about their experiences of flood or drought? If so this may be the ideal opportunity for you.

Manasamitra is looking for local artists to take part in our TERRARIUM project and to form a part of our local team for more work as a part of Kirklees 2023. TERRARIUM is a project that has our relationship with our environment, specifically water, at its heart, looking at the impact on our lives of too much or too little water. The project ‘kicks off’ our Kirklees 2023 contribution, engaging local communities in conversation and creative activities.

The selected artists will collaborate with Supriya Nagarajan, Duncan Chapman and other artists to produce an immersive event planned for December 2022 in Dewsbury and online. We are giving special consideration to artists who are working with local community groups and would like their groups to be a part of the wider Kirklees 2023 activities.
To apply, please submit a brief CV and details of any community groups with whom you work.
