Making Public Art - a new interview series

We worked with some wonderful artists throughout 2023 to bring large-scale mural pieces to various locations across Leeds, as part of LEEDS 2023.

We’ve been catching up with the artists, in a new series that looks at working with communities, sustainability, and their working process in creating public art.

Rhian Kempadoo-Millar – Reflections of Carnival

In the first installment, you can hear Rhian Kempadoo-Millar talk about the creation of Reflections of Carnival. Developed in partnership with Leeds West Indian Carnival and Leeds City Council, the artwork celebrates the rich, vibrant history of Leeds West Indian Carnival. It is situated on the gable end of a two-storey house on Savile Mount in Chapeltown, at the heart of the Caribbean and Carnival communities.

You can find a transcription of the interview here.
