An exhibition celebrating the work of two New Creatives trainee artists: Adelle A'assante and Rachel Rea

Over the past 6 months, 2 artists have been trainees at Everybody Arts as part of the New Creatives project. This exhibition acts as a showcase for their work.

Afe Bi Yε Esan, 'The Year of Great Misfortune', is an immersive multisensory installation by the artist and lived experience storyteller Adelle A'asante and invites participants to delve deep into the heart of cocoa farming communities in Ghana.

Radix is an interactive and participatory exhibition created by Rachel Rea that explores themes around plant sciences, from microbial and visual stimuli to germinating and growing living plants.

About New Creatives: Real Living Wage Traineeships

New Creatives is a training and mentorship programme that is helping to kick start the careers of four emerging artists in Calderdale. During a six-month paid placement, the artists have the opportunity to earn, learn and create at the same time. They gain valuable skills and mentoring tailored to their practise and are supported in developing a new cultural activity that will engage and inspire the people of Calderdale to be more creative in their everyday lives. With the support of Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council’s Culture Grants, New Creatives seeks to address some of the challenges and barriers that exist in the cultural sector by empowering the next generation of visual artists underrepresented by the cultural sector.
