For Creative Breakfast this spring, we’re welcoming guest speakers who have transformed their city streets, disused high street shops and public spaces with creativity, ambition and a DIY spirit.
For the second session, we’re welcoming Rachel Horne, the artistic director and co-founder of Doncopolitan, an arts and culture magazine created to celebrate the cultural events happening in Doncaster. Rachel is also one half of Horne and Draper, a cultural change agency which is rebranding and rebuilding Doncaster from the ground up.
Rachel’s approach to art is rooted in encouraging, developing and celebrating creativity which already exists – but which is not always recognised.
Brigantia’s monthly Creative Breakfast aims to facilitate conversations on how creativity can benefit our area and improve the lives of those who live and work in Dewsbury and the surrounding area.
You don’t have to be an artist or business owner to come along, but you’ll get to meet likeminded people, share ideas, learn – or just listen to conversations about creativity with a coffee and croissant.
Brigantia is our creative meeting and making space in the heart of Dewsbury. It’s a place for people to come together for creativity and learning, collaboration and conversations.
Events at Brigantia are free, but you will need to be a member to attend. Not a member yet? Don’t worry. You can pay your £3 membership fee on the door at your event, or you can sign-up here.
Brigantia is not currently wheelchair accessible after 5pm. There is an accessible toilet and on-street parking outside the building. If you’d like to know anything further about accessibility contact us on 01924 437 966.
Brigantia is located on the 5th floor of Empire House on Wakefield Old Road in Dewsbury Town Centre. Empire House is the building above the Post Office, just next to the town hall. Someone will be located at the entrance of the building to send you in the right direction on the day.
