Now arriving in the North

About Us

Brigantia is a new organisation that supports positive social change through arts and culture. We make great creative things happen for people and communities in West Yorkshire. We work and collaborate nationally and internationally with artists, producers, facilitators and thinkers to bring new opportunities to the people and places that need them most.

Excuse us while we build Brigantia - more information coming soon.


Our Work To Date

Creative Scene

Since 2014, the team behind Brigantia has led the Creative Scene programme in North Kirklees. As part of Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places programme, they have been creating more opportunities for people in North Kirklees to choose, create and take part in brilliant art experiences across the Batley & Spen and Dewsbury areas.

A new star in the European Constellation: Tandem Regions of Solidarity

We are proud to be the North of England hub for the new Tandem Regions project - a constellation of changemakers in European neighbourhoods and regions, connecting together for learning and exchange through collaborations and placements.

Grown out of our participation in the Tandem project over the past 5 years, with partners the European Cultural Foundation, we will be collaborating with Hubs in Athens, Greece, Berlin, Germany, and Aveiro, Portugal, developing cultural innovations to support communities and neighbourhoods that are often ‘left behind’. We will be developing joint initiatives and bringing good practice to the attention of European and regional decision makers, through international ‘light-house’ events.

One Fine Day

A multi-media performance with 100 different groups and communities from across Kirklees - each telling their stories of the last year, and looking forward to the one fine day when they can all meet together. More info coming soon.

“In a small dark room, where I will wait
Face to face I find, I contemplate
Even though a man, is made of clay
Everything can change, that one fine
Then before my eyes is standing still
I beheld it there, a city on a hill
I complete my tasks one by one
I remove my masks when I am done”

David Byrne/ Brian Eno

Union - in the heart of Dewsbury

We know great creative places need creative spaces, and at Union, our new 3 storey base in the town centre, we will be running a wide programme of events and activities as well as creating space for our vibrant and diverse communities to make their own events and activities. Want fun creative things to do with all the family, to set up a writer’s group, host a poetry event, find out about local events, watch performances, find rehearsal or meeting space, develop your arts career?

Union will be for YOU: come make it what you want. More info coming soon.
