One Minute Motions

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Thanks to the care and creativity of our Curious Motion family, in 2020 we launched Calderdale’s very own gallery of mindful videos, incorporating dance and movement.
The collection of One Minute Motions films was launched on World Mental Health Day 2020 – it’s free to view and was created to boost mental wellbeing among the Calderdale community and beyond. 

This project was created in response to the pandemic. Every one of us has been spending less time making memories with our loved ones. It can feel lonely and worrying. The One Minute Motions project reminds us that we are all connected.

In September 2020, wonderful people submitted their one-minute film creations, supporting the mental health of others. Each piece in the gallery has a unique feel; some are relaxing, others are upbeat. Some focus on the wonder of nature; others celebrate the freedom of music and movement. Each submission is one of a kind, just like the person that made it, and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you.

A minute is all it takes to calm your mind and body. So, instead of using a meditation or mindfulness app on your phone or watch today, why not try something new? Take a look at the One Minute Motions gallery, made with love for the greater good of Calderdale.

With love,

Sam and the team at Curious Motion x
