Growing Cultures

Growing Cultures

Jean is working with Kirklees Council via their Temporary Contemporary initiative in an ongoing public creative consultation project, ‘Growing Cultures’, engaging with people in Queensgate Market in Huddersfield to explore and test ideas for culture in the district.

The project, designed and carried out by Jean, based in Huddersfield’s Kirkgate Market, invites people to imagine, dream and talk about what tomorrow’s culture in Kirklees could be and look like, via a wide range of creative activities, from seed planting to zine making, mapping, and conversations. Jean will begin a new phase of the project in May 2020, details to be announced via the Creative Kirklees website  later in the Spring.

Jean previously worked with Kirklees Council Creative Economy team in 2016 on the ‘Postcards From the Future’ project
