Sidor Avoda: From the Kibbutz to the Calendar Girls' Yorkshire

This event has passed

Celebrating twenty years since the release of the ‘Calendar Girls’ screenplay, we present a unique exhibition displaying photographs from a reimagined calendar from Israel.

The Sidor Avoda (meaning ‘Work Schedule’) exhibition came about when members of the Shaar-Hagolan Kibbutz, 2600 miles from Craven, saw the 2003 film ‘Calendar Girls’ and started a conversation with a local designer.

The creative project evolved and connections were made between the past and the present, the young with the elderly, traditional core values with those of the modern-day kibbutz environment.

As well as looking at the Israeli project the exhibition will delve into the Craven Museum collection, showcasing objects related to the original Calendar Girls story, 24 years after the original ‘Alternative WI Calendar’ was released by the members of Craven based Rylstone Women’s Institute.

We are delighted that members of the Kibbutz and design team will be travelling all the way to Skipton to join us at the exhibition launch.

Our Exhibition Gallery is open Monday – Saturday, 9.30am – 4.30pm.
