The East Leeds Project is a curatorial platform and operates nomadically at present within a five-mile green corridor running north to south through the eastern part of the city of Leeds, UK. This follows the route of the Wyke Beck Valley and is bookended by formal and historic parks at Roundhay and Temple Newsam. The project is research-led and seeks to locate an intersection between the overlapping concerns of contemporary visual art (as social practice); blue-green infrastructure in the city; and issues of sustainability – both human and environmental. We are actively seeking partnerships with artists and organisations interested in these practices globally.
