Through our community engagement programme we are working closely with asylum seekers, migrants, and refugees across Leeds and Wakefield on a programme which sees them working with artists and visiting all the venues in Yorkshire Sculpture International.


Making Matters

In summer 2018, the Yorkshire Sculpture International team ran Making Matters, a project with communities in Leeds. Artists based in Leeds and community groups visited our four partner galleries: Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park and created new sculptures together.

We’ll be doing more of this kind of activity across Leeds and Wakefield in the months leading up to, and during, Yorkshire Sculpture International to inspire everyone to think, talk about and make sculpture.

Supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation

Our engagement programme

Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 has an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.

We are exploring sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
