‘art and Soul

In October 2019, we initiated a one-off coming together of Burnley’s creative community, a unique seminar about art in Burnley, hosted at the town’s new digital hub ‘The Landmark’.

Presentations were made by Jai Redman representing Creative Spaces Burnley, Ormskirk based musician and art producer Ian Brownbill, Waqar Ahmed from The Hollins project and Marc Francesch Camps, representing the Planter’s Project in Girona, Spain.

The event and discussion was chaired by Gina Dowding MEP, as part of the Greens In Europe’s ‘Green Cities’ series. ‘art and Soul was a great opportunity to explore how new cultural experiences can redefine our town for visitors, investors and residents, and to ask ourselves what role the arts and artists play in social cohesion and the development of Burnley.
