Elland’s Happiness Lab Exhibition

The first measure of happiness in a small town in the UK through the arts!

From November 2021 until July 2022, Curious Motion was dancing, drawing, writing, singing, chatting, and making with the local community to explore what happiness means to them. Local people from across different ages, heritage backgrounds, and life experiences got involved, check out what we got up to below!

Happiness Exhibition

All the beautiful notes, drawings, and pieces of writing collected from the project were curated into a special exhibition in Elland Library!

On display from Monday 18th July – Friday 26th August during usual library opening times – don’t miss it!
