For the 5th and final Social Club project East Street Arts and our partners worked with established as well as emerging artists from across the country and Germany who brought new ideas about twinning and its relation to connectivity, communication, mobility and travel.
The artists’ different experience with and understanding of the region’s social, historical, cultural and political history gave us a great opportunity to explore similarities and differences from very different points of view between places and people in West Yorkshire and the Ruhr Valley in Germany .
East Street Arts is passionate about art and the importance of artists in society. For us art is a social thing, it happens everywhere and it changes our thinking about life. As French artist Robert Filliou once said ‘Art is that makes life more interesting than art.’ We hope you agree. Enjoy!
