I am a spark – A three-minute film capturing the diverse, cultural zeitgeist of the city. A vibrant spoken word monologue highlighting the cultural aspects of Leeds, the enthusiastic ‘can do attitude of its people, their capabilities and how together as a city we can achieve great things. Showcasing a mixture of more traditional arts/culture iconography interspersed with contemporary arts groups to promote Leeds as a 21st century city and the constant drive to shape the future of its (young) people.

Leeds is bidding to become European Capital of Culture 2023 and is currently developing an inclusive, city-wide cultural programme for 2023. With over 170 languages spoken in Leeds it is important that foreign languages feature strongly in this programme and so we are asking for your creative ideas!
Join us for the workshop “Culture Meets Languages” to share your ideas with the Leeds 2023 bid team.
In this workshop, led by the Leeds 2023 Artistic Programme Coordinator Matt Burman, we will be looking at the great opportunities emerging from the use of languages in cultural programming. We are inviting language enthusiasts and cultural practitioners to feed in ideas for the Leeds 2023 artistic programming and to discuss challenges and successes of cultural programming with languages.
