Rhubarb banner

West Yorkshire’s proud history of rhubarb-growing provided inspiration for an innovative Learning & Participation project created by Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival during March and April 2011.

Rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb involved sound artist, musician and educator Duncan Chapman working with Year 5 pupils from Overthorpe Junior, Infant and Early Years School in Thornhill, Dewsbury.

Please browse our website to see the project results including: sound pieces made by the participants using SoundPlant software; photographs of workshops and our Rhubarb-B-Q outcome event; rhubarb recipes collected by the participants and a video made with time-lapse photographs taken at a nearby rhubarb farm.
