Youngsters create window artwork at Armley Leisure Centre

New window-based artwork inspired by the creativity of young people is now gracing the front entrance of a popular west Leeds leisure centre.

This follows the completion of ‘Highlines’, an arts project delivered at Breeze Saturday Night Project at Armley Leisure Centre.

Local artists Fabric Lenny, Lou Sumray, Nick Lewis and Leo Brazil joined forces with young people to create a window installation. The design brings together a variety of images created by young people, which were developed through hands-on workshops with the artists and also local musicians.

Cllr Lisa Mulherin, Leeds City Council’s executive member for children and families, said:

“It has been absolutely fantastic to see the creativity of our young people in west Leeds come to the fore through this particular ‘Highlines’ project, which has resulted in some wonderful window artwork being installed at Armley Leisure Centre.

“The young people played an important role in the design and concept of the windows, and we would like to offer a big thank you to local artists for helping to bring their vision to life. We look forward to seeing more innovative work such as this one being undertaken as part of our Breeze projects in other areas across Leeds.”

The Breeze Friday and Saturday Night Projects are funded through the Area Committee Youth Activity Funds, Leeds Housing Advisory Panels, Pudsey Targeted Services Cluster and Leeds Inspired. The ‘Highlines’ project was commissioned by Leeds Inspired.
