Creative Scene – a place where people make art a part of every day life

Creative Scene is an arts project that commissions, programmes and produces projects in North Kirklees, West Yorkshire.

Creative Scene is exploring ways for the public to get involved in shaping local arts provision, experimenting with new and different approaches to commissioning, producing and presenting the arts in the places where people live and work.

This is a rural-urban area of historic towns and villages, around the steep valleys of Pennine Yorkshire, the triangle between some great cities and at the heart of the ‘Northern Powerhouse’, that’s home to 180,000 people.

We’re one of Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places projects.
