Culture is embedded in Wakefield’s DNA
Wakefield district is renowned across the world as home to major cultural institutions such as The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. But it is the people, the heritage and the great diversity of Wakefield district that are at the heart of its cultural riches.
Public Art is no longer a single art form, such as a sculpture in a town square to be simply viewed. Public art is now an exciting, engaging and interactive world of community gardens, murals, audio, video and light-based works projected onto buildings, one-off events, unexpected performances and pop-ups, festivals and workshops that take place in any location where the public can access them including parks, town squares, on and inside buildings.
