East Street Arts’ public programme is focused on the practitioner as collaborator, instigator, deviser and active link between creative exploration/production and engagement with other people. We are interested in working with practitioners based in Leeds and those from further-a-field who see collaboration and participation as intrinsic to their work.
The programme is events-based and forms the public face of the organisation aiming to develop relationships between practitioners and participants/audience members. Events take place in appropriate spaces including Patrick Studios’ Project Space.
Our curatorial approach is to question traditional formats of presentation and engagement in order to further the relationships between the producers and consumers of art.
We also accept proposals and we are open for working with students.
Current programme in development:
Come Find Us: celebrating the creative community in Sheepscar and Mabgate
Public Art in Chapeltown: Under the Paving Stones, the Beach
Common All Games: in collaboration with the Comm(o)nist Gallery
Compass: Stimulating Live Art in Yorkshire and the Humber.
