Well Travelled

Well Travelled

Where are you going and where have you been? Which journeys made you feel better, and which journeys might have saved your life?

Photographer Mat Dale and writer Katie Jane Hill have spent the summer on Leeds buses exploring the links between travelling and how we feel. The results are to be displayed at The Old Red Bus Station as part of Love Arts Festival.

Whether it’s using the buses to get to places for treatment or therapy, to meeting friends and travelling together, and finding a way to get out and about when all you want to do is stay indoors and hide from the world. By sharing some of these stories we hope to show that the bus network of Leeds isn’t just a practical way to get from A to B, but can be a lifeline to connecting with the world, with healing and with other people.
After taking journeys with 12 people the exhibition presents 12 photographic portraits taken on the buses of Leeds, and texts drawn from conversations about wellbeing and travel during those journeys.
