ArtSpace LifeSpace Artist Talk
42 New Briggate. 6th July.

Art in Unusual Spaces and MAAP present… ArtSpace LifeSpace are an artist group from Bristol experienced in using empty and disused spaces in the city for art use. We have invited them to talk in Leeds as a way to reflect upon Art In Unusual Spaces activity to date, share practice and think about new opportunities and methods that could be applied in Leeds. The talk is for anyone interested or involved in Leeds’ art activity both within or outside of the context of Art In Unusual Spaces.

‘The Artspace Lifespace Project is an artist led initiative that recycles vacant, under-used and problem properties into thriving active creative resources.

We work in partnership with building owners, property developers and the local community to secure and re-use interesting, unusual and often difficult spaces as vibrant multi-use art venues.

‘”As a company we have found Artspace Lifespace dedicated, passionate and hard working.”
Darren Sheward – Urban Creation

‘We manage the site under contract and create workshops, studio spaces, galleries, cafés, performance and training facilities, which we then make accessible to the local community. Each building we manage we aim to make sustainable and self-supporting, all funds raised through events, activities or donations from artists for use of space are channelled back into the Project.

‘We rely a lot on the energy and time donated by our core members and network of volunteers as well as the awareness and revenue raised from our public events and regeneration services.’

The event is free but please email if you are planning on attending so we can organise the space accordingly.
