Here at Leeds Inspired we love a nice bit of print, our office walls are plastered with event posters, postcards and screenprints.
Three years ago we commissioned four artists to respond to our strapline ‘See What’s Out There and in 2016 we teamed up with Leeds Film to commission a set of 30th Anniversary posters for Leeds International Film Festival.
Our 2018 artists commission is Leeds Inspired White Rabbits!
Saying White Rabbits when you wake on the first day of a new month is a tradition that's guaranteed to bring good luck for the rest of the month. It's a tricky thing for people to remember so, to keep the good luck vibes strong in Leeds we always post a lucky White Rabbit on the first day of the month across our social media channels.
In 2018 we're commissioning 12 artists to create a unique set of Leeds Inspired White Rabbits and bring Leeds good luck for the whole year. The lucky rabbits will be used across our social media channels and made into a Leeds Inspired printed calendar for 2019 - spreading rabbity joy and good luck across the city.
