Coastal North Fellowship: Meet The Artists & Leeds Trip

Our first outing with the Coastal North Fellowship began with a trip to some of the most vibrant creative hotspots in Leeds...

To bring everyone up to date with what’s been going on behind the scenes with the Coastal North Fellowship, we’d love to welcome each of the eight artists to the programme; Imogen Sophia, Jamie Walton, Mary-Ann Stevens, Molly Newham, Savannah Storm, Sommer Vass, Thomas Robinson and Liam Burke.


The 13th of January brought us our first session with the Artists, with an inspired visit to Threshold in Leeds, hosted by artist Julia McKinley, talking about the beginnings of this artist-led programme, support networks and self-organising.

Next up was a trip to the Henry Moore institute followed by a tour of contemporary art gallery The Tetley with curator Georgia Taylor Aguilar.

Continued by an introduction to East Street Arts and the Art Hostel with artist development coordinator Frank Lamb. We finished the day with a mono-printing workshop at Leeds Print Studio.

continuing with our programme of professional development, and by working with other artists and organisations we can’t wait to see where our work with the Fellowship will take us next, keep an eye out on socials for more updates on profile debuts and behind the scenes content!
