Leeds Art Crawl Open Beta

Leeds Art Crawl has now expanded to Art Crawl, discovering and mapping public art in more cities including Dublin and Bradford.


#leedsartcrawl is an Open Data game to highlight public art & its audience in the city of Leeds.


Can open data encourage civic participation?

There are 200+ public artworks distributed across the city. Some are very visible, others, not quite so. They also vary considerably in medium and style. So our goal is to create a comprehensive data set about the public art offering across the city.

It should be noted that this is currently in active development so will contain bugs.
