Hidden High Street Histories of New Briggate - Artist Commissions


Our Hidden High Street Histories of New Briggate commissions call out is now live. We have 3 available to apply for and we cant wait to see your submissions!

We are developing a programme to explore the past, present and future of an important high street in Leeds City Centre – New Briggate.

We are planning 3 artists commissions and we will work in partnership with Leeds City Council and Historic England and leading a consortium of organisations which includes Leeds Heritage Theatres, Opera North, North Bar and Brewing, Leeds Civic Trust, Age UK and The Churches Conservation Trust – all residents of (or
around) New Briggate.

These opportunities are for 3 artists to work individually and collectively as part of a 3-year cultural programme that will celebrate our high street.

Each artist will be placed in residence across the consortium members and will work with identified neighbourhoods that hold a connection to the high street.

Application deadline: 5 pm, 19 July 2021
