Leeds Creative Labs is part of a longer-term programme of engagement and collaboration between the University of Leeds and the local creative and cultural industries of the North, aiming to…

  • Spark collaborations between academics and creative innovators to find new and inventive ways to showcase academic research and achieve broad public impact.
  • Increase our understanding of how the arts and technology might inform and support research relevant to contemporary society.
  • Create new works, new ideas and new methodologies through collaboration and creative prototypes.

In winter/spring 2016, the DARE Edition Leeds Creative Labs will bring academics together with leading organisations in the performing arts.

In Spring 2015, Leeds Creative Labs partnered with The Hepworth Wakefield, define a challenge to Remix The GalleryIn summer of the same year, the first DARE Edition brought together Opera North, Cap-a-Pie and SAA-UK.
