Welcome to our website and our to Inter-Arts Festival site . We are happy you have found us. Inter-Arts is an organisation that brings all the arts together.
In August 2018 we did our very first Inter-Arts Festival 'Art Through Trauma' at Artsmill, Hebden Bridge and the feedback was amazing. Our Artists raised awareness on many taboo subjects from ptsd, sexual and domestic abuse, grief, suicide, schizophrenia, and brain trauma , in the form of performance, spoken word, art, workshops and talks.
In May 2019 we put on our second Inter-Arts Festival to raise awareness on Mental Health and we had organisations like the Arts Council and Healthy Minds come to visit and show appreciation of our work and what we are doing.
In August 2019 , we did our 'Festival of Childhood' at Artsmill, highlighting the many ways a person remembers and reframes their experiences, from nostalgia to happiness to trauma. Throughout the festival we had an Art and Word Exhibition, Installations, Workshops, Performances, Films and Talks.
