Sarah Caputo & Brenda Unwin

1000 Handshakes

22/11/2018 – 24/11/2018 10am-7pm Leeds City Bus Station
Dyer St, Leeds LS2 7LA

For 3 days over the festival Sarah Caputo and Brenda Unwin will be collecting 1000 handshakes.

By placing a small piece of clay between the hands they will create a unique impression of a moment of communication between strangers. The handshake is a universal symbol of greeting, parting, agreement and acknowledgement. It’s a physical connection all the more significant in our contactless, virtual reality, hands-free world.

Their aim is to encourage interaction between people and create concrete evidence of a moment of communication between pairs of previous strangers.

Join us in the bus station as we put people in touch with each other and create thousands of new connections.
