First Performance and Talk is from Artist, Skye Shadowlight on Friday 9th of August. Starts at 8pm at the David Wright Gallery = “SHADE SCHOOL” Installation, Video, Performance. 'SHADE SCHOOL is a large scale art installation that I built from found objects in 2015. It began as one desk but as the story kept unfolding I added another and another. Now, I have an entire Victorian Classroom worth of work, with each piece telling a unique and individual story. In 2013 my child, who has autism explains that her teacher has been putting her under the desk as a punishment. He said that she liked it there because it was not too bright, and because she doesn’t like noise. Like a dog, the only child in the class sitting under the teacher’s desk for being naughty. My child often misunderstands things by taking them too literally. The teacher everyday would call the girls, boys and the boys, girls as a joke. All of the children laugh at his silly mistake. My child felt he was misunderstanding her as everyday she explained that she was not a boy. This just added to her distress. She would cry and they would laugh at her inability to be flexible. He continued and so did the “bad behaviour”.“Under the desk!” These are just some of the disgusting way that mainstream school were getting it wrong for my child and what drove me to create this emotive work. The school were screaming for inclusion at every turn, yet not training the staff to understand my child’s needs. A too common story. A archaic school setting for modern day disabled child. I invite you to attend SHADE SCHOOL Art Installation including video and performance. ' Skye Shadowlight Children can attend the workshops under supervision of an adult* Workshops on Saturday 10th of August - 10 am start in The Art School at Artsmill.

Suitable for all abilities as the chosen images can be as simple or complicated as you wish. This building has limited access for the public, lacks any facilities such as running water and it can be very cold even on a hot day so it is essential to wrap up warm. You are welcome to use the facilities at Bankfield Museum which is a short stroll through the park. The floors are uneven, there is seating within the pews but you may also wish to stand with an easel provided or bring a small portable stool. You may wish to bring along your own sketchbook or paper and drawing materials, though some will be on hand as well as boards and easels. You may also wish to bring along a camera to capture more for work at home as there is so much to inspire. Contact Jane for booking and any enquiries, 01422 353308.

    Sat 14th Sept – 11- 3 PM Sun 15th Sept – 11 – 3 PM Sat 21st Sept – 11-3 PM Sun 22nd Sept – 11-3PM FREE TO EXPLORE There is always something new to discover year on year. Come and visit this extraordinary Grade 1 listed Gothic church commissioned by the local industrialist Edward Akroyd 160 years ago. It was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and considered to be his finest church with exceptional stained glass. Scott also designed the model village Akroydon for Edward Akroyd’s mill workers and the old manor house was later donated to become Bankfield Museum. As part of the anniversary celebrations of The Churches Conservation Trust and the building itself the dedicated volunteer team are working to bring this generally unused building back into the community, to be an exceptional venue for events and exploring the history of the area. ‘TIME & PLACE’ solo art exhibition by Jane Austin Local watercolour artist Jane Austin is holding a third solo exhibition of paintings, this year reflecting the rich heritage of the church, the Akroydon model village and Halifax itself, rooted firmly in the Industrial Revolution. The drawings from several workshops during the year will inspire to take a closer look. Meet the artist and see how she develops her work, recently seen as a winning artist on the BBC 1 series ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’. Once a thriving church it fell into disrepair and was no longer used for regular worship by 1989. However many people still have fond memories of family celebrations and connections with the church which are being gathered into a community project of stories and images, ‘People of All Souls’. Guided Walks A knowledgeable guided walk of the area, with Jackie Butterfield, will leave the church on Sunday 15th Sept at 11 am and Sunday 22nd Sept at 11am taking approximately an hour, inviting a donation of £3.00, bookable through the Halifax Visitor Information Centre, 01422 368725.
