CECIL GREEN ARTS IS AN ARTIST LED ORGANISATION BASED IN BRADFORD THAT WORKS WITH COMMUNITIES TO CREATE STREET THEATRE AND EVENTS SPECIALISING IN LARGE SCALE LANTERNS AND PUPPETS.
Cecil Green Arts’ mission is to place celebratory, inclusive and high-quality outdoor arts at the centre of every community within Bradford District and beyond. We aim to inspire and co-create within diverse communities, listening to and responding to their needs, providing people with opportunities and a voice. We use our creative engagement as a means to foster and enhance wellbeing; tackle inequality; contribute to place making and social inclusion; and promote the need for environmental change – thinking globally and impacting locally.
Cecil Green Arts works with community groups, developing ideas and themes leading to creative participation that often happens in outdoor spaces.
Our professional artists facilitate creative workshops providing materials and equipment to enable the creativity to flow. We then develop a final event with as much community involvement as is possible, whether that is the unveiling of a mural or a parade with hundreds of people attending.
You may have hosted a range of projects and community events including Lantern Parades, Mythical Beasts project, Bradford Bells, Puppet Theatre and much more.
