Objectives

Space2 is an arts and social change charity working with people living in challenged communities across the City of Leeds, with a focus on inner, East Leeds, using community development principles to improve health and wellbeing. We co-create activities with local people to build skills, capacity, resilience, confidence and agency at community and individual level and in turn increase participation in the community through volunteering, affordable food and clothing initiatives, peer support groups and projects.

Our work is high quality, relevant and representative co-designed with local people of all generations, cross-sector partners and artists, bringing under-represented voices, stories and perspectives to stage, page, screen and gallery. We work with local and regional artists, often with similar life experiences and characteristics to our communities, experienced and committed to equity of participation and a collaborative approach that enables local people to build skills and confidence to fully participate and be heard within the creative process.
