What Is Our Biennale?
Our Biennale is a festival of arts and culture made with children and young people in Kirklees. Throughout the festival musicians, artists, theatremakers, and choreographers work with schools, colleges, and communities to enable children and young people to make their very own remarkable pieces of music, art, poetry, drama, and

The focus of the festival is well-being and using the arts to inspire children and young people as they juggle school and overcome the effects of lockdowns and isolations. Artists have helped them celebrate and express themselves through movement, music, self portraits, alter egos, avatars, puppets, costumes and more.

Our Biennale projects were delivered from April – June 2022 and this year’s theme is MAGNIFICENT ME!

Produced by the Kirklees Local Cultural Education Partnership, Evoke, Our Biennale is led by The Children’s Art School. Partners from Evoke collaborate with young people, artists, cultural organisations, and teachers in Kirklees to cocreate this amazing festival for the whole community.
