Current Project



OverWorlds & UnderWorlds has begun. An eruption on Briggate in central Leeds has surprised & intrigued shoppers and pedestrians. Direct from the imaginations of the Quay Brothers, the familiar street has been radically re-imagined as a 14 metre wide sculpture burst through onto the surface of Leeds overnight.

It has arrived just ahead of the main event next weekend, 18-20 May, when Leeds will be flooded by artists, musicians and performers channelling the Quay Brothers vision into the atmospheric Dark Arches, the elegant County Arcade, and the busy streets in and around Briggate.

Join us at the Dark Arches, County Arcade or on Briggate to collect a map & explore the OverWorlds & UnderWorlds, allowing yourself a couple of relaxed hours for this enigmatic multi-venue experience. For further details, hints and clues follow @OW_UW, Leeds Canvas’s Facebook page or visit
