UNTOLD STORIES – HIDDEN COMMUNITIES Reminder for primary Schools if they would still like to contribute to the Hidden Stories Art Project (Bradford 2025)


We would like to invite you to be part of an art project designed by Feversham Primary School and the Bradford 2025 City of Culture bid. The project involves individual children from Bradford’s primary schools making a square of artwork telling their “Hidden Story”.


These will be collected to be made into a patchwork quilt, that collects all these individual pictures, stories & expressions into a central artwork.


The finished piece will make a giant quilt that will become part of a touring exhibition so school’s can represent, share and celebrate the hidden stories of their peers from across the region.


We would like you to choose a group of children to engage with the project – a year group, a class or a smaller, targeted group.


Here is a link to instructions to use with the group both as a PDF and a video - created by the children from Feversham Primary School.




Unfortunately we cannot supply materials for schools to use but the project has been designed in a way to be adaptable to resources that may be available and to use up materials left from other projects.


Schools should find a time that suits them, either a one off or a series of sessions to complete the artwork, but we would respectfully request that the patches to be completed no later than the week commencing 24/05/2021.


Once completed please email to let us know the artwork is available to collect and leave it at the school office labeled “UNTOLD STORIES – HIDDEN COMMUNITIES art project”.


Digital submissions should be email ed to Projects@bradford2025.co.uk


We apologise for the short deadline, the project has been affected by COVID restrictions closing down schools, but we felt it would be prudent to launch the project after the Easter holidays when school life felt as “normal” as possible.


If you plan to take part please confirm to us by email at Projects@bradford2025.co.uk


We would like to thank you and hope that this can be a fun creative project for pupils and staff as we move from spring into summer.
