Elland’s Happiness Lab Showcase

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!

Showcase Celebration

To celebrate the project we held a very special evening event for the community on Friday 15th July 2022.
The event featured our special ‘taster menu’ of dances, performed by two of our brilliant dance artists, Matt and Isla. We also shared food together, enjoyed conversation, and finished with a special finale where the whole room danced together! Thank you to everyone to helped make this project happen and who joined us along the way. Here’s some highlights from the night!

This project is very much the start – a catalyst for increased access to high quality creative wellbeing provision that is accessible to all people, supports a sense of belonging and community cohesion locally, and celebrates this wonderful part of the world!
A big thank you to The National Lottery Community Fund for supporting this project.
