COMMISSIONED BY LEEDS 2023 PRESENTED AS PART OF LEEDS DIGITAL FESTIVAL

As part of a series of events, talks and workshops for Leeds Digital Festival 2021, we’ve commissioned artists Closed Forum 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.


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.


We have various time slots for you to come and explore our Digital Leeds in Gather.Town
