Beam collaborated with Open to the Public to devise and deliver a series of open creative consultation sessions for the public and children and young people from nearby schools to reimagine Castleford focusing on the new Henry Moore Square and Riverside development.

We adopted an artist-led approach with a variety of activities devised to enable participants to participate whether they had 5 minutes or 30 minutes to spare. Each element enabled us to draw out what is currently important to the public about Castleford, how they would like to use the new spaces and what they would like to see in the future.

Community input will feed into the development of Wakefield Council’s plans to revitalise Castleford town centre through the £23.9m Towns Fund that was secured earlier in 2021.
