Current Projects

Community and Outreach

Square Chapel has been providing inclusive arts activities and opportunities for schools, children, young people and older people for over 12 years.

Our current programme is funded with a grant from the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund. The main aim of our provision is to increase access to social and cultural opportunities for children, young people and older people in Calderdale.

All the current workshops and activities are listed in this section and places are limited for most workshops – please contact us first to register.

In September 2014 there will be a transition in funding and we will offer a limited programme for the autumn season.  If we are successful in achieving further funding, most activities will resume and we will also be offering some exciting new activities.

For further up-to-date information please check back here regularly, have a look at our What's On pages or contact Michaela O’Sullivan, Education and Outreach Manager, on 01422 353073 or email michaela@squarechapel.co.uk

Open Doors Schools Project

Open Door offers schools a diverse programme with heavily subsidised tickets to shows. Workshops, projects and resource packs are also available.

Open Door works with nurseries, infant, primary and secondary schools and colleges; it can also support schools who are doing Arts Award. If your school is interested in taking part, or you would like more information about what we offer, please contact Michaela O’Sullivan, Education and Outreach Manager, on 01422 353073 or email michaela@squarechapel.co.uk
