For the fourth edition of Compass Festival we programmed three major new commissions from award winning artists made especially for the festival.

We invited the Scottee to find the “loneliest street in Leeds” and get neighbours talking to each other.

Jack Tan combined his legal and artistic skills to create an animal court of justice in the Town Hall. And Redhawk Logistica will be conducted a far-reachingpoll of mood and feeling in six districts of the city.

We took audiences on the river, shook hands in the bus station, and sparked conversations in the pubs of Kirkgate. The amazing sauna created by Bethany Wells was back by popular demand.

All events were made possible by a host of brilliant partners in Leeds bringing artwork to many well known public places across the city.
