We know that lip service and empty rhetoric is never enough; the need for action is clear.
We ask you to take a moment to read our statement and the resources we've put together on racism, anti-blackness and your role in it.

Awake at night, we wonder whether the stories our minds tell us about what is going on around us are true, and whether together we can imagine positive, engaging and creative stories about what the future holds for us, our families and our friends.
Devised by Irregular Arts with support from Bradford Council’s RESPONSE funding during the 2020 Covid crisis, Bradford-based artists Jenny Wilson and Carolyn Mendelsohn share a live (and then re-watchable) late night exchange.
It’s a conversation, some laughter, some stories, and some creative impetus (perhaps sharing a recipe, a writing exercise, a game, or some imagery) that we hope might inspire ‘self care’ rather than feed late night anxieties.
We are voluntary collective of artists/activists/community organisers and we are excited to mark #SouthAsianHeritageMonth 2020 in Bradford with a series of radical events and activities that platform our stories, our culture, our way!

Slinging dough around, making sweet treats for the kids, friends and neighbours! Ben would love to hear all about it.
Ben is a professional baker and artist working in Bradford gathering recipes of lovely baked things made during lockdown from Bradford residents to compile into one big online community recipe book.
If you have made some bread, some kahk cookies, a couple of good old cupcakes he wants to hear from you. I will need the recipe and method of your favourite lockdown bake and optionally a picture of the final product and a line or two about why you decided to bake during lockdown.
If you fancy taking part please send over the above info and pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org .
All participants will be invited to a free live online baking tutorial hosted by Ben!
You can also share your recipes on the project's Facebook page, have a peek below.

★★★★ The Guardian
Bradford Fringe Festival is proud to be a virtual venue for Homeskool Beatbox Adventures, a weekly
live streamed interactive show empowering kids and their families to find their true voices and create their own music.
For 30 minutes every Thursday presented by Shlomo and a series of awesome guests!
Rather than traditional streams, each of the shows are presented daily, ``chopped up`` and interspersed with chat from Jon and David as well as academics and guests, to talk about their creative process and how they work on their research with academics.
It'll be of great interest for makers and creatives interested in imaginative comedy writing and deft deployment of the comic form in contemporary theatre.
It's on a tiered Pay What You Can ticket with a zero option. Click below for more info & tickets!
Terrestrial want to invest in artists to foster community links with people and groups local to wherever they are based. And to take some time for research and reflection… to think about the work they’ve done in the past and how they might continue to share artistic experiences with community collaborators in the near future.
