Join our new Local Stories group

Are you interested in exploring stories about Keighley people and places?  
What are the Keighley stories we need to tell the world?
Would you like the chance to meet with other people in Keighley to discover, share and tell local stories together?
 
This new creative group is for Keighley folks who are interested in local stories and histories of any kind - about Keighley people, characters, legends, communities, neighbourhoods, spaces and places - past or present.
We’ll be meeting regularly to explore, discover and share Keighley stories that we want to tell, and to find creative ways of telling them to the world! 

 Come to our first meet up on Saturday 7th April, from 2-4pm. 

What is Create Connect Make?
Create Connect Make is an open invitation for people to get involved with making creative activities happen in Keighley Library. The project is funded by arts organisation The Leap. As part of the project, we are creating new groups which will be supported by Library staff, local artists, poets, writers and others to develop ideas for events and activities that could take place in the library.
These groups will be very informal and social. No experience necessary but we welcome input from the experienced to the beginner with tons of enthusiasm.
All ideas welcome and over the coming months we'll test them out together!

What can I expect?
We’ll start with sharing stories about Keighley, getting to know each other and coming up with some ideas of what stories we might like to explore and how we can do this with the Library. 
We’ll decide how often and when we want to meet and make some future plans 
The session will be super informal, friendly and we’ll supply refreshments.

Who is it for?
The groups are open to adults and young people over the age of 14. 
No experience necessary but we welcome input from the experienced to the beginner with tons of enthusiasm.
If you can’t make this session, don’t worry, you can join us at a future meet up!
