KIOSK is our mobile makerspace designed and built by artist Emma Hardaker, with help from our friends at Duke Makes. KIOSK will take opportunities for hands-on making direct to the people through artist-led creative workshops delivered in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings from community centres to parks, libraries, schools and anywhere else across East Leeds and further afield.
Now, due to funding from Leeds Inspired and Leeds Community Foundation, we’re looking for Leeds-based artists and makers with experience of delivering workshops in public settings with a range of groups, including people with additional access requirements. We’re planning to tour KIOSK to large-scale public events such as local fairs and galas (when restrictions allow) as well as smaller-scale workshops for specific groups, tailored to their needs and interests and planned with them in advance. Workshops can take any form and be in any media – from printmaking to textiles, drawing to digital media – provided you can use KIOSK as a base for the activity.
The deadline for applications is midnight on Friday 2 July. We can’t wait to hear from you!
