Curious Motion was founded in 2019 after the success of several creative projects in Elland, led by our Artistic Director, Sam McCormick. Sam moved to Calderdale in 2015 and has built strong relationships with residents, community groups and businesses in and around Elland and the Lower Valley. Through Sam’s conversations with local people it became clear that there was a strong desire for new and aspirational experiences to be readily available. So, she piloted several projects, with great success, and Curious Motion was created!
We exist to create meaningful high-quality artistic experiences where people connect with themselves and each other for the benefit of their health and happiness. We particularly focus on working with people of any age who:
– Have limited or no access to creative wellbeing opportunities
– Are at risk of discrimination, isolation, and/or loneliness
– Are living with one or more chronic health conditions or are at risk of declining health
– Have complex social needs that affect their wellbeing
We are advocating for a more connected and inclusive society, rooted in collective wellbeing, kindness, and joy.
