Art Trail

We are delighted to officially announce the launch of an exciting public art trail in Autumn 2022! A free event for the whole of our community to enjoy, the spectacular showcase of creative talent will be put on display across Kirklees, forming an interactive Art Trail never before seen here in Kirklees.

To celebrate the care that is available to patients in their own homes and care homes in every street, village and town, 30 uniquely designed sculptures (and 30 mini sculptures) will create an interactive trail across Kirklees. Lasting for eight weeks, the amazing installations will pop up in towns and villages throughout our region for everyone to explore and discover. The free public event is set to benefit the whole community, with hundreds of thousands of people expected to join in the fun.

It’s the perfect excuse to visit our great towns and villages next year. We hope it will inspire you to get outside and explore your local communities again.

Each bespoke sculpture will be based on one exciting theme, which is being kept firmly under wraps for the time being. But you don’t have too long to wait to find out. All is set to be revealed at our official launch event on Tuesday 5th October. Keep your eyes peeled for more details!

We're teaming up with event experts Wild in Art, who have been delivering world class public events across the globe for over ten years.

For eight weeks in Autumn 2022, our towns and villages will become a haven for visitors, all flocking to see amazing sculptures designed and decorated by talented artists from across our region and beyond.

The Art Trail will celebrate our rich history and shared culture, encourage people to rediscover vibrant urban spaces and spend time outdoors, and show off the creativity that our towns and villages have to offer.

Businesses and individuals will be given a unique opportunity to sponsor a sculpture and schools will also be able to get involved in a whole range of creative learning activities – and they’ll even be given the chance to design and adopt their very own mini sculpture.

Since 2008 Wild in Art has animated cities across the world including Manchester, Sydney, Melbourne, Cape Town and São Paulo, and created public art events for the London 2012 Olympics, the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Historic Royal Palaces and Penguin Random House.

Connecting businesses, artists and communities through the power of creativity,  our events to date have enabled more than £15 million to be raised for charitable causes through auctions alone and helped millions of people of all ages to experience art in non-traditional settings.

Being creative through the medium of art not only gives people a voice, it’s also beneficial to health and wellbeing. Taking part in our events has never felt so good.
