AN art performance teaching youngsters about the importance of their health and wellbeing has began touring around Barnsley.

Last year, as part of the National Portfolio Organisation status and funding, Barnsley Libraries announced a list of creative commissions committed to bringing more art and culture than ever before across its branches.

Bee Kind, by artists Natasha Clarke and Stevie Cairns, uses puppetry and classical music to inform kids about the importance of health and wellbeing.

A total of 16 sessions will take place across Barnsley, including a number which occurred this week.

Anna Hartley, executive director for public health and communities, said: “The reception to Barnsley Libraries creative commissions has been fantastic and it was great to see many people attending events and getting involved with activities.

“Barnsley Libraries remain committed to continue bringing art and culture to our residents and visitors and we cannot wait to share the new programme of events very soon.”
