Kirklees Windrush Mural Project
The Windrush Mural Project is a 1-hour workshop to contribute to the development of a large-scale permanent outdoor artwork in Kirklees, exploring stories and experiences of the local Windrush Generation.
The workshop will be delivered by Chol Theatre and KLTV. The workshop includes a conversation about the Windrush Generation, explore themes of race, heritage and identity and will approach the context of Windrush through a local lens with clips from KLTV’s Windrush documentaries.
All materials created during this session will be taken away by a professional artist and used as inspiration for the final mural.
