WORKING ALONGSIDE ARTISTS

We have been very fortunate over the years to have had the opportunity to work alongside professional artists and as a consequence have been exposed to an array of creative responses to the canal and its surrounding environment. These response have been in the form of photography, filmmaking, digital media, design work, artist commissions and music production.

Yvonne Roberts spent some time with us as an Artist in Residence, during which time she created an extensive portfolio of work exploring the creative impact of Light and Dark along a short stretch of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.

Many of Yvonne’s image have been exhibited throughout Leeds as a celebration of the local area, as well as been used within the design of promotional material for Canal Connections.
