Compass Festival returned for its 6th festival in November 2022. In our first full festival since the pandemic, Compass delivered an ambitious programme featuring 4 original artist commissions, all born from artist residencies that took place during 2021.
We invited audiences to share their best piece of advice, take a journey on an afro futurist spaceship, delve into a surreal soundscape in a familiar place, eat their way through Caribbean ancestry and help us answer the question: ‘What are the flavours of Leeds?’.
Compass Festival 2022 took place over 10 days in Leeds Kirkgate Market, St Johns Centre and a host of supermarkets across the city. For the festival we collaborated with Food Development experts,Elderly people from Bramley, Black and Caribbean communities, Tarot readers, Debt consultants and many more.
