Halifax Library + Archives

Output: Exhibition
Client: Halifax Library, Arts Council England
Partners: Calderdale MBC, LDN Architects


2016/17 saw a huge re-development of Halifax’s cultural quarter with Square Chapel and the Piece Hall undergoing schemes of renovation, and a new £9m library being built.

Halifax Library Service were awarded Arts Council England funding to lead a series of public engagement activities across Calderdale connected to the new development. Unity House were commissioned to film and photograph the project – entitled We All Have a Story Tell – as well as create a video installation for the library. 

Unity House partnered with Yorkshire Film Archive on the installation, re-purposing footage from an earlier piece by Halifax Cine Club film and creating a new score.
