Armley art collective Assembly House is celebrating the town’s creative and diverse community with the launch of a sculpture trail on Saturday (13 August)
Three artists, Amelia Frances Wood, Rosie Vohra and Paul Millhouse-Smith have worked with Armley Helping Hands, West Leeds Men’s Network and New Wortley Community Centre through a series of workshops, to produce the sculptures, which can been seen at Canal Road, Theaker Lane (off Armley Town Street) and Charlie Cake Park.
There will be an official opening event on 13 August and the sculptures will be in place until 11 September. At the opening, there will be interactive workshops, as well as on 3 September to coincide with Armley Festival.
A walking tour of the three sculptures sets off from Charlie Cake Park at 1pm. There will be a gathering afterwards at Leeds Industrial Museum to chat about the sculptures, find out more about the community groups that helped inspire and design them and give a huge thank you to everyone who has made this happen.
The project is supported by Leeds Inspired, Scurrah Wainwright Charity, Yorkshire Sculpture International, Interplay Theatre and Inner West Community Committee.
