An online world created by Closed Forum and commissioned by Leeds 2023.


As part of a series of events, talks and workshops for Leeds Digital Festival 2021, we have been commissioned to create a playful online world for Leeds 2023 that will continue to evolve and grow in the run up to and during the Year of Culture.

We are opening up A Digital Leeds on April 28th so people can start exploring.


This is the first time we’ll be sharing the world with you! There are a series of events and activities you may want to join us for listed below. But if you just want to take a look around we’re offering two hour slots to have a wander over the course of two days.


A Digital Leeds looks at the imaginary spaces in between our wards. What happens when we start to think of the space between our neighbourhoods? What playful possibilities open up when we look at our city as a virtual world?

This first phase of A Digital Leeds has been set up so that it can grow and be re-used in the future. We want it to become a space where people can take a breath, meet up and experience art and culture in a digital space.

This event is part of a series of activities delivered in partnership between Leeds 2023, Global Leeds Forum and Leeds Digital Festival to celebrate the power in art and digital collaboration.
