Leeds Inspired loves a good poster, our office walls are plastered with event posters, gig posters and screenprints.
In 2014 we commissioned four illustrators to respond to our strapline ‘See What’s Out There’. The artwork was used to create posters and print to tell people about the Leeds Inspired What’s On website in the lead up to the Tour de France Grand Depart.

Over the past year Aire Place Studios have painstakingly created a new community arts space in Kirkstall to provide artists' studios and workshops designed to support people with a range of learning and access needs. Created without any official funding Aire Place Studios represents a real labour of love for the community of people who have built the space up and the venue was due to officially open in February 2016. Sadly the Boxing Day floods have washed away months of hard work leaving Aire Place Studios back at square one.

The Christmas Dinner project // Wed 23 Dec 2015 07:57 pm

Created by the poet Lemn Sissay "The Christmas Dinner" is organized by a set of artists, adult care leavers and social care professionals from each city where the Dinner takes place.   They work together from October to December  to provide a Christmas Day dinner to remember for care leavers between 16 and 30. Many young people leaving care are sat in flats, B&B’s, hostels, sofa surfing and indeed living on the streets on their own at Christmas. It can be a day to dread and then forget.

If you could make anything happen on stage tonight, what would it be?
Given the time and space and resources, what would you really truly want?
Chris Goode & Company (the makers of ‘9’ and ‘The Albemarle Sketchbook’) are making a brand new show, and right now, they know nothing about it at all. It's a totally blank canvas. Anything could happen.

I’m sitting at Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley. The sound of a man singing a new song fills the air.

If there's one place in Leeds that gets us feeling festive it's Hyde Park Picture House. Surely the building was designed to be dusted with snow, festooned with fairy lights and popped in its very own snow globe?
