Brigantia Artists Online

  • A new online exhibition
    All Day
  • FREE

Due to Covid-19, we have postponed our physical exhibition at Batley Art Gallery, but we still want to celebrate and show off the creative talent in this area.  

We’ve seen creativity blossom while our community has been self-isolating, from the colourful rainbows displayed in windows to the innovative new craft creations, from new poems and creative writing to atmospheric photos taken on daily walks.

So we’re relaunching our Brigantia Artists exhibition as an online exhibition. And for this exhibition, we are asking the community to respond to the theme of TRIBE.

We sometimes think of TRIBE as a close-knit group of people who have been bound together by a place, dream or idea. It might call to mind ancestors or kindred spirits. At this time of global unease, TRIBE could evoke feelings of loss or solitude but it could also mean support, partnership or connection.


How to apply

We encourage applications from artists and artists groups who are at any stage in their career. This includes people who have just picked up a paintbrush for the first time to established artists.

Responding to the theme of TRIBE, we welcome submissions from artists working in any medium including, but not limited to, photography, painting, screen-printing, short pieces of creative writing, sculpture, mixed-media, video art, crafts or textiles.

Up to 30 artworks will be selected for the show, and you must be over 18 to enter. If you’re under 18, we have a dedicated opportunity in Young Brigantia Artists.

To submit work to Brigantia Artists you must be living or working in North Kirklees. (Dewsbury, Batley, Cleckheaton, Heckmondwike, Mirfield and all the streets, villages and suburbs in between.)

Submit your work by Sunday 3 May here. 


Why Brigantia Artists?

Brigantia is Creative Scene’s creative space in Dewsbury that connects artists and creative people and offers training, events, networking and arts workshops. The name is inspired by the goddess of the north – a champion of the arts and the protector of the largest tribe in Yorkshire.
