Sheaf Street: Gotta Get Through This

Sheaf Street: Gotta Get Through This
Written by Duke Studios  30/03/2020

Sheaf Street and Duke Studios events space may be closed but, to quote the one and only Daniel Beddingfield, we've all Gotta Get Though This and there are plenty of ways you can support and join in the work that we do here in Leeds. 

Double Whammy Sheaf Street Fundraiser
As of the 17th March we have had to temporarily close the doors to the public at Sheaf St - a cafe, bar and event space. This has put a great deal of strain on our business but things are much more concerning for others in even more tricky scenarios. We’re going for a double whammy on fundraising here - 50% of funds will go to help those in more need than us during the virus outbreak. The other 50% will go to help us to keep Sheaf St going while we have no customers. More info about the Fundraiser is here.
Money raised will be spent equally:
- Supporting Leeds South and East foodbank in vital donations
- Creating a swiftly accessible freelancers support fund for creatives, artists and musicians in need due to work cancellations or lack of government support
- Help keep Sheaf St running and enable us to re-purpose staff time to help others

Tune In To Duke Studio Evening Sessions
Duke Evening Sessions is a series of online curated conversations with human beings - mainly from the creative, digital and tech sector but we might just throw some other fields in for good measure. With all of the ticket proceeds going to the Sheaf St Freelancers and Foodbank fund. First up is Morag Myerscough - a London-based artist whose work is characterized by an engaging boldness, creating specific, local responses to each distinct audience that will see and experience the work, using it to create community and build identity.
