Kritics YouTube pilot series Casting opportunity March 28

Would you like to feature in a YouTube series and be paid for your views on art?

Kritics is a new YouTube series aiming to flip art criticism on its head by inviting a group of ‘non-art going’ Brits to become…Kritics!

The project is light-hearted with a Gogglebox reaction-style format where members of the public will be encouraged to respond honestly to examples of contemporary art (from the comfort of their own homes).  The project aims to build a large, diverse and engaged audience throughout the country with the mission of demonstrating art is for everyone – it’s up to you whether you like it or not!

We’re looking for members of the British public to become our KRITICS, especially if they’re not already engaged with art or educated in the arts to take part.

We’re after enthusiastic, opinionated people to be filmed reacting to contemporary art from the comfort of their own living rooms! We want honest, ‘no holds barred’ reactions and opinions!

We need pairs or groups from the same household/bubbles, no art or artist knowledge preferable!

Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities free Parenting Programme April 22

Are you a parent with children aged 3-18?
Do you want to help shape services for the future?
Come and be part of a study to promote family wellbeing!

The Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities free Parenting Programme for local parents & carers will be run again, starting April 22.

The course will take place in person at Ash Green Children’s centre in Mixenden.

This free, 13 week course aims to help you to

  • Build positive family relationships
  • Manage anger and stress
  • Implement effective discipline strategies
  • Gain confidence and communication skills
  • Understand your child’s development
  • Recognise and value your family and cultural traditions
  • Meet others and share ideas

The course is aimed at parents, step parents, grandparents and foster carers who have got a child aged between 3-18.

The programme is part of a research study from the University College London: The Together Study. This means that a researcher would like to talk to you before the programme starts and at three time points after the programme has finished. You will receive a £10 voucher for each questionnaire you complete with a researcher.

Part of the research is that parents are randomly allocated to either the group starting in February or allocated to a group starting in September. (The researchers can explain more about why) – a computer decides who takes part in the group now or in the group later and the decision cannot be influenced.

Halifax Opportunities Trust, Sure Start Children’s Centres & North Halifax Partnership are working with UCL and Race Equality Foundation to offer Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities free Parenting Programme.

For more information please contact Julia Brierley: 07852174007
