A creative space to share your film, photography and creativity
Our VisionBradford UNESCO City of Film and Bradford City Council have teamed up to provide a new programme of events and content for the Bradford Big Screen. As well as providing national and local news, sport, arts, culture, entertainment and events, we want the screen to belong to the people of the city. If you have a film, photographs or other content to share with us then please get in touch. With 500,000 people on average passing by the screen each month it's a great opportunity. We're looking for content that enlightens, inspires, entertains, brings a smile to our faces — and make us proud to be from Bradford.

NOT JUST HOCKNEY
AN EXCITING EXHIBITION ON BRADFORD BIG SCREEN SHARING THE WORK OF HUNDREDS OF ARTISTS FROM ACROSS THE DISTRICT WITH VISITORS TO THE CITY. ON THE SCREEN EVERY DAY AT 1230
Not Just Hockney is the brainchild of amateur arts enthusiast Colin Neville. The exhibition features work from painters, ceramists, textile and jewellery makers. Artists involved say the project gives them vital outdoor “gallery” space after harsh economic times have seen many local galleries closing. If you can't get down to the screen watch the exhibition here.
September and October's exhibition - Artist's Choice
Morwenna Catt: Textile Artist/Illustrator
I’m a textile artist and illustrator working in 2D and 3D. I hunt for vintage fabrics and discarded craft projects to incorporate into new work because I love things that have a story or are worn by years of human contact. I love history, folklore and things that seem a little magical or totemic. I often make art that responds to museum collections or stories handed down through generations.
Shy Burhan: Artist/Photographer
I took the leap from commercial photographer to artist in 2015 and have not looked back ever since. Community, equality, and an endeavour to be kinder to others, myself, and our planet drives me. I have been fortunate to meet and work with some of the most inspirational people and I can only hope that I keep forging new connections.
Jane Fielder: Painter/Printmaker
A great lover of life, I produce work prolifically and my subject matter and media are deliberately varied. I am as happy working in traditional watercolour as I am using spray polish and eggshells; as happy with a toothpick or a comb as with a paintbrush. I like to decide on a subject, then push it to its limits, experimenting and discovering along the way.
Terry Greene: Painter
I’m engaged with drawing and colour in an attempt to open up a space for a dialogue. My practice is one of trying to be in the moment – being present that instant when some form of dialogue begins within each work. Each new painting leads to new possibilities.
Jean McEwan: Visual Artist, Organiser and Facilitator
I make things, mostly collages and ‘zines (handmade magazines), and I work with people. I’m founder of the grassroots arts project ‘Wur Bradford’, which works with communities in Bradford to explore how creativity can empower and connect us. I think of all the things I do as collage – cutting things out, mixing things up, creating new conditions. It’s all about trying to find meaning and connection. Contact: jeanmcewan.com
Sven Shaw: Illustrator
I am an illustrator based in Baildon specialising in illustrated cityscapes with a local flavour. I love detailed illustrations that absorb the viewer and provide something new every time they are looked at. Art should be a shared experience, available and accessible to everyone.

Bradford UNESCO City of Film, David Wilson said: “Some of the artists we are working with are well known but others are not and so we’re delighted to be supporting local creativity. The images and photographs of the work are stunning and will no doubt draw some real attention in City Park.”
Not Just Hockney will run every day at 1230 on Bradford Big Screen. Six different artists will feature bi-monthly. For more see http://www.notjusthockney.info/
