In this activity the urban community is going to create Totems Poles together, unraveling ancient culture's meanings in a collective ritual at the Piazza Centre of Huddersfield. These friendly event aims to motivate the collective construction of Totems by the local community in an open space. The Totem’s construction is going to happen in a workshop for 100 attendants, using cardboard and simple techniques. The workshop facilitators are local artists, members of the collective initiative CollaborArti that holds a shared space in front of the Public Library. After the workshop, the Totem Poles are going to be presented to the public in the main event at the Piazza, with music, projections, and snacks for the attendants.

What we'll deliver:

  • Workshop preparation: project management coordination and logistics, visual materials production,
  • Travel expenses of one the four core members of the event’s organization from outside the UK.
  • Workshop execution: 10 facilitator’s expenses including payment for one day of work and alimentation.
  • Tools and materials: these requirements are simple and cheap, including cutting elements, cardboard, glue and paint.
  • The Piazza Centre can provide infrastructure including tables, chairs, electricity, internet and toilets access.

Why it's a great idea:

The project aims to promote engagement around an activity that brings culture, leisure, identity, and historical meaning. Our goal is to join the community around a public space in a collective ritual open to everyone. The participants are going to create a totem pole using simple and practical techniques with the supervision of artists that are members of our organization.

Steps to get it done:

  • Workshop preparation: project management coordination and logistics, communication and divulgation.
  • Workshop execution: 10 facilitator’s expenses including payment for one day of work and alimentation.
  • Travel expenses of one the four core members of the event’s organization from outside the UK.
  • Tools and materials for the activity

CollaborARTi is a group of artists that are using empty shops in the Piazza in Huddersfield to showcase artwork and run workshops opening their doors every week.
