Love Arts @ Leeds City Museum

A FREE day of wonderful workshops, interactive installations, and excellent exhibitions! Love Arts will take you on a fantastic journey full of surprises. Let us welcome you to a world of wonder, where geo-domes transforms into galleries, and dance, drama, and stories popup where you least expect them. There’s a smorgasbord of creative happenings to suit all appetites, so you can talk, watch, take part, or listen as the mood takes you. So why not have a nosy, linger, relax, and share experiences with friends you haven’t met yet?


Pamelashop is an interactive installation that will be popping up at different events during the festival. Pamelashop: all kinds of things here, but it will cost you! Since people always want something for something, Pamelashop offers objects in return for kindness. Each shop item has a compassion retail price. What do these objects represent and can you pay?
