FUSE

During our trip to Bradford, we visited Fuse Art Space. This is a gallery, art space, performance venue and shop who host wide variety of artistic genres. They host artist talks, film screenings, exhibitions, workshops and performances all the time and it was a very interesting place to visit.

When we went, there was an exhibition on about war which included some very graphic pieces of work with a woman giving birth to weaponry and torn down buildings. When looking at the work, the space was very nice to be in and was great for showing artwork. We spoke to a member of staff who told us about opportunities we could get involved in like volunteering at exhibitions and helping hang work. This could be some great experience and would be interesting to help out there.

Fuse is open from 11am till 6pm and they can be found at this website address - http://wearefuse.co

Bill Moyers has won countless Emmy Awards, Peabody Awards, and more for his hard-hitting journalism and commentary, mostly via documentaries and commentary on PBS. No stranger to tackling the hard questions before us, he dropped by “The Colbert Report” to talk about our disappearing middle class and the dismantling of the Voting Rights Act.
