BPH is led by a consortium of Bradford organisations and artists: Theatre in the Mill (lead), Mind the Gap, Kala Sangam, 154 Collective, Common Wealth and Displace Yourself – but the project is for everyone interested in making and seeing more live arts in Bradford. BPH have awarded local artists and companies have been awarded grant support to develop and showcase exciting new performances. Our Make Workgrant aims to support and showcase Bradford’s creative voices – re-imagining the city as a thriving hub for performance.
“We have big ideas, big dreams, and support to celebrate the creativity and drive of Bradfordians.”
Working with our Associate Artist, Natalie Davies, Bent Architect will create a fully fledged theatre show in Spring 2020. Using firsthand stories, FULL ENGLISH will be a poignant, funny and life-affirming homage to the strength of women who raised the first generation of mixed-race children in Bradford in the 60’s. It will explore our shifting sense of identity – as Bradfordians, as mothers and daughters, and as women who exist on the boundaries of cultures and race.
Because, let’s face it, who is full English anyway?
