I wrote the bid, and was the Associate Producer for OverWorlds & UnderWorlds, Yorkshire’s Artists take the lead project, mounted by Leeds Canvas and the Brothers Quay.
Leeds Canvas was made up of a consortium of eight Leeds based cultural organisations, Leeds Art Gallery, Leeds Met Gallery, Northern Ballet, Opera North, Phoenix Dance Theatre, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Yorkshire Dance and the City Council.
The Quay Brothers led a team of over 350 producers, makers, artists and performers in the delivery of a site specific work taking place in the County Arcade, Briggate, the Dark Arches under Leeds railway station and the streets in between. 20,000 people came to experience the work over three days in May 2012.
