verd de gris arts have been awarded funding through Historic England’s Everyday Heritage Grants – to create an innovative intergenerational project with the aim of celebrating the working class culture of boxing clubs around Halifax, West Yorkshire.
Halifax Stars will record the stories of older fighters, and the gyms that used to be a prominent feature of the area – as well as celebrating the importance of boxing coaching with young working class people today – the instilling of self-discipline and self-care, respect and pride in community.
The project will be cross cultural, reflecting the communal nature of boxing culture here in Halifax, but will, importantly, share this culture with a wider audience – to increase understanding of boxing’s remarkable working class legacy in the area, and champion the work that is done through the clubs to help some of the poorest and most marginalised young people in our communities.
