Co Lead artist

East Street Arts & Leeds City Council 2016

Artists Victoria Kortekaas and Louise Atkinson worked with three schools in Harehills to produce public artwork that would be displayed on banners throughout Harehills. Victoria and Louise worked with the schools addressing issues of inclusion diversity and wider community through a series of workshops. The Harehills project was a part of a Leeds City Council Neighbourhood Improvement Scheme for Harehills Lane and the surrounding area, which also included two new pieces of public sculpture in painted stainless steel by artist Ian Kirkpatrick. The project, supported by East Street Arts, brought together local councillors, artists, Leeds City Council Town and District Centres, the Inner East Communities Team, The Compton Centre Staff, the local community and schools. The Harehills Project
