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.
Due to COVID-19 May and June's 'Community Art' exhibition was only available online. Throughout July and August this exhibition will be shown every day on the Big Screen at 12pm.
July and August's exhibition - Local Portrait Artists
Buddy Brook is a wood sculptor, painter and illustrator, who works from his studio and home at Baildon.

The Bradford-born sculptor, Jamie Wardley, is the founder of ‘Sand in Your Eye’. Jamie and his team have built an international reputation for their sand portraits, and land art, and ice sculptures. They have worked on a wide range of commissioned projects, included memorably creating sand portraits in 30 UK coastal locations reproducing the many faces from WW1 to mark the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day 1918.

Although the artist, Tom Wood, was born in Tanganyika, there is a strong education, work and residency connection with the Bradford district. He has built a global reputation for his commissioned portraits, which have included Prince Charles, Lord Robert Winston, Lord and Lady Harewood, and Alan Bennett. Tom’s work is now included in over thirty public and corporate collections in Britain, including the UK National Portrait Gallery.
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/
