Cecil Green Arts creates visual street theatre in community settings, festivals and in the public realm. The company's larger than life creations have been a staple of many participatory events, including lantern parades and street performance in Bradford, since 2011. The company's core team of local artists has a long-term commitment to the communities of Bradford. Cecil Green Arts commitment to Bradford's diverse communities creates accessible routes into the arts in areas where there is limited opportunity. Their street parades attract audiences in the thousands who may not consider art in more formal settings. This small exhibition in the Cellar Gallery showcases some of their recent puppets, lanterns and creations.
