I was very grateful that all the butterflies from the 5 libraries installations came together in one place for WordFest, Wakefield Libraries Festival of Words. This event was also part of Earth Fest.
The installation took place over 7 days from 23rd October 2021
WX is the former Wakefield Market Hall and is a vast space. The hall was partitioned off into different zones – Water, earth, and air. The Butterfly Effect formed a canopy for the performance and presentation area in the Air zone.
Funded by Wakefield Council.
A massive thank you to everyone who contributed a butterfly to the project, especially the following schools:
Fairburn View Primary School (Airedale), Oyster Park Primary Academy (Airedale), Newlands Primary School (Normanton), St Peters and Clifton CE VC Primary School (Horbury), and Carlton Junior and Infants School (South Elmsall)
