The people of Bradford will be celebrated in a new exhibition opening in a Bradford gallery later this year.

We are West Yorkshire: Bradford People will open in Bradford Council run Cartwright Hall in Lister Park, and feature art and artefacts that show off the district’s talents.

The items come from Bradford Council's historic and artistic archives.

The exhibition will include pieces by Heaton’s glass designer Kalim Afsal and Manningham based photographer Nudrat Afza as well as David Hockney - the district's most famous artist.

It will also shine a light on work done by innovators such as Titus Salt, Christopher Pratt and the Bronte sisters as well as reformists Miriam Lord, Margaret Macmillan and Richard Oastler.

The exhibition will also feature a selection of watercolour Bradford street characters and dignitaries of the Victorian period, by artist John Sowden.

We Are West Yorkshire includes exhibitions in galleries in each of West Yorkshire’s five local authority areas.

In Castleford there will be an exhibition looking at the history and impact of Rugby League – the sport which was born in West Yorkshire. Halifax will bring together art inspired by Yorkshire, Huddersfield will explore the lives of women from the region up until 1918 and Leeds will showcase the stories and experiences of migrants to the city throughout history.

The Bradford exhibition begins in Cartwright Hall on April 10 and runs until September.
