Co-founder Karen Watson to appear on public sculpture championing women of Leeds

We’re thrilled that our co-founder Karen Watson is one of nearly 400 inspirational Leeds women, voted for by members of the public, being celebrated with a new sculpture in the heart of the city’s cultural quarter.

Created by artist, Pippa Hale, ‘Ribbons’ will be located at the top of the gardens between Leeds City College’s Quarry Hill campus and Leeds Playhouse at the gateway to the SOYO development at Quarry Hill, from July 2024.

Developed by local MP and Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rachel Reeves, and led by Leeds Arts University in partnership with Leeds City Council and Leeds City College (member of Luminate Education Group), the project aims to celebrate women, past and present, who have contributed to the city.
