Creative Wakefield Framework

Wakefield district has a proud history of creativity. The birthplace of Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, John Harrison, George Gissing, Helen Fielding, David Storey and The Cribs, to name just a few. Our asset base is increasingly diverse and dynamic, reflecting our changing world. We have two world-class cultural destinations, in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and The Hepworth Wakefield, and a range of other rich cultural assets.

This document provides an initial framework to guide the work of Wakefield’s new Creative Compact including a wider emerging Creative Network through an initial ‘development’ phase and towards future iterations. The document has been developed through extensive consultation with the cultural and creative sector and wider stakeholders, with strong support for a jointly owned plan with a single vision for the district.
