The Flourish Project: We Cannot Walk Alone

This exhibition is a culmination of work made by the participants of the Flourish Project delivered by Hive – an Arts Charity based in Shipley and funded by The Henry Smith Foundation – who work to reduce social and economic disadvantage.

The project worked with refugees and residents of Bradford, Keighley and West Bowling discussing issues affecting quality of life in a supportive and safe environment.

The foot artwork represents the journeys the participants have made. The title ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’ is a quote from Martin Luther King’s historic ‘I have a dream’ speech in 1963 demanding racial justice and an integrated society.

Work made by the participants based in Keighley is also featured in the new BouncebackFood CIC Charity Cookbook Secret Dishes From Around the World 3.
