About us

Arts Together is a growing network of arts and community partners who are working together to ensure that the arts in Leeds and beyond are as welcoming and accessible as possible for everyone.

Our activities include:

  • Coming together regularly to network, share ideas and discuss good practice
  • Producing a list of welcoming and accessible events
  • Working together on joint events and initiatives which aim to open up a wide range of art forms to new audiences

We believe that engaging in the arts can be enjoyable, inspiring, illuminating and even life changing, and that by working together we can have a positive impact on people living in Leeds and beyond.

Arts Together was previously funded by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. It is now funded by Leeds City Council and managed by Opera North. Listings are provided by Leeds Inspired.

Meet the Team

Lily Craig, Network Manager 

I’m Lily and I co-run Arts Together. I’m a freelance project manager, community producer and creative. You may see me at a lot of different community meetings, arts event and spaces and places across Leeds!

Arts Together is a culturally exciting network that brings together arts and communities organisations from across Leeds. I’m so excited to see how the network can grow together and continue to advocate that art and creativity is for everyone.

I’m keen to meet, chat and learn from our city and those doing the brilliant work so if you have an idea, support or just want to meet for a cuppa, then drop me an email.
