Leeds 2023 - Bid to Become the European Capital of Culture > Call for collaboration

Leeds 2023 is seeking artistically adventurous, high quality and ambitious ideas and projects for its bid to become European Capital of Culture.

The organisers want to hear from artists, makers, companies, curators, organisations, charities, communities and individuals about programmes, art work, events and exhibitions that could contribute to 365 days of European Capital of Culture programme in Leeds in 2023. Ideas do not need to come from to artists and organisations working in the cultural sector.

The Leeds2023 is initially seeking between 40 and 50 extraordinary projects and concepts that engage with the Leeds 2023 themes, and will engage the city’s residents and attract national and international visitors.

The themes are: fabric, fear and belonging, voice and room.

Ideas from local, national, European and international sources are welcomed. However, your idea must involve a Leeds artist, company or community as a partner or host (this can be prospective at this stage).

Deadline for the expression of interests: 28 March 2017
