Unseen Histories- Celebrating Black Heritage In Leeds
The final culmination of our month-long festival, Ran throughout September 2021, culminating artworks and events exploring Black British history in Leeds. The festival is curated by Black artists in and around the city, with support from Heritage Corner, pioneers of the Leeds Black History Walk and Assembly House, an artist studios and project space in Armley, Leeds.
The industrial revolution included contributions of peoples from different parts of the world, many of whom are represented in Leeds today - how can we celebrate inclusion in the telling of these narratives?
Many communities are excluded from the knowledge about the richness and success of Black history and culture in Leeds, the festival aims to give access to this history in unconventional and artistic ways, hoping to engage with the wider community.
Armley Mural Neighbourhood Project
In September 2019 Assembly House commissioned 4 artists to do murals around Armley.
These artists worked alongside the community to bring 4 amazing new murals into the local area, all drawing inspiration from the local people and history of Armley
To celebrate the unveiling of our new murals. Specially commissioned to showcase emerging mural artists and in response to our local area, we invited the local community for walking tours of the brand new public works of art, we held an opens studio to explore our artist studios, meet the mural artists and enjoy some free food and drinks.
