There are lots of ways to get involved in Echoes Of Oz.

EMERALD CITIZENS:  Invest your time on this project and be part of making it happen – and you get to be an ‘Emerald Citizen’ – you get an exclusive badge and a big thank you on our website HERE.  There’s lots to do, and for most of it you don’t need any special skills or qualifications – but you could be on the inside of Dorothy’s House, the first to slide on the Ruby Slipper Slide, or step on the Yellow Brick Road…

AWARDS:  Your chance to nominate a Bradford-based friend, colleague, community or group leader for a ‘Heart’, ‘Brains’ or ‘Courage’ Award – CLICK HERE. 

BE PART OF THE SHOW – 100 munchkins, 100 Emerald Citizens, 100 poppies, 30 Flying (cycling) monkeys, 75 Dorothys – you or your school or dance group could be part of the finale in October.  We are looking for 75 women and girls to join our flash mob of ‘Dorothys’ and 100 young people in dance groups to perform as Emerald Citizens – sign up now – contact to find out more
