Assembly House has been a part of its local community for 9 years, and we love it.
We run many public exhibitions, workshops and activities aimed at celebrating our community and bringing it together, working with other local organisations and residents.
We have worked with local community groups to create outdoor sculptures, run free workshops for local residents, created murals for the area and held a a month-long festival of art, film, food and performance exploring Black British history.

Assembly House is currently home to 49 creatives who make up our lively and thriving artistic community. They are professional practitioners including educators, performers, painters, sculptors, illustrators, video artists and designers.
We aim to offer affordable studios to emerging artists, our artists get technical support, producing support along with access to workshops, internal film screenings and events.
Assembly House is artist-led and artist-focused, so has the ethos of helping our early-career artists, from providing technical support, to support in writing applications.
We also involve artists in projects allowing them to gain professional experience, as well as supporting artists who are not studio members through open calls for a broad range of projects.
WHAT THE HECK IS ASSEMBLY HOUSE ANYWAYS?
Assembly House is an artist-led community arts organisation, project space and artist studios located in a Victorian mill, alongside the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, in Armley, Leeds.
Since 2013 we have been providing affordable studio spaces, career support for early career artists, developing creative projects in and for our local community, a programme of skills sharing, and commissioning local artists.
