Headingley Enterprise and Arts Centre (HEART)

Bennett Road, Leeds, LS6 3HN

Photography Exhibition by Maria Spadafora

By taking the iconography of big princess frocks and tiaras and populating them strong, powerful, talented people from Yorkshire (including some in drag), these photographs poke a little fun at gender stereotypes whilst celebrating the diversity of real people. Nobody in these pictures is waiting to be saved by Prince Charming.

This exhibition first appeared at Arts@Trinity in September 2017 to great reviews, so this is another chance to enjoy these gently subversive portraits.

It will be accompanied by a gender-positive songs and stories workshop 'Not All Princesses Wear Pink' on Saturday 3rd March, in celebration of International Women's Day.

 "Love this exhibition. Wonderful to see 'normal' women of the community who are 'princesses' in their own right!" Visitor

Wheelchair Access

Easy access for people with disabilities is a priority at HEART, and the centre features extra-wide doors, ramps, easy open main door, and a lift to all floors. Assistance dogs are always welcome, and we will always do what we can to ensure the centre is accessible to all. HEART is also proud to be one of the only centres in the north of Leeds with a ‘Changing Places Disabled Toilet’ in line with the Changing Places campaign. HEART is tremendously proud to have won the Community Benefit award at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors Pro Yorkshire Regional Awards for 2014.
