Our canvas is Leeds, our buildings and streets, our people, our artists, our arts companies.
The Leeds Canvas project for 2012 was part of Artists Taking The Lead, the UK Arts Councils' flagship project for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, and was curated by The Brothers Quay.
Find out more about the Quay brothers’ body of work and their vision
To realise their vision they led a team of artists, performers, technicians, freelancers and suppliers from Yorkshire, Leeds and beyond. Find out who was involved.
Being part of The Space, Arts Council England's collaboration with the BBC, has enabled us to play further with the amazing material artists created in Leeds this May.
During the making of OverWorlds & UnderWorlds some of the people involved shared their thoughts on the process.

In our Education and Outreach programme we explored both the themes of Canvas 2012 and how we use the arts to explore our sense of place, place as a canvas.
