The Arts and Minds Network would once again like to work in partnership with artists in all mediums, whose work has a connection to mental wellbeing. The annual Love Arts Festival will run this year from 5th – 20th October 2016.
Deadline for Submissions is 4pm on Monday 9th May
To submit a proposal to contribute to the festival, your event must have a mental health connection. Have a look which option below best describes you.
1. We would love to hear from you if you are artist or group, with an event within the festival dates, in Leeds, with funding and a venue in place.
In the past we have included exhibitions, shows, workshops, gigs, talks, dance, performances and films. See here for last year’s programme.
Our festival team will read all submitted events and let you know if you have been successful by 4pm on Tuesday 23rd May – Propose an event for 2016.
2. If your proposal is not confirmed and is still at the ideas stage, we would still like to hear from you, but please do not use the submissions form. Contact us at We may be able to link you up with someone who could help or advise you.
We collate the information that you give us to create a coherent one stop programme for visitors, all under the umbrella of the Love Arts Leeds Festival.
We can offer you some extra exposure to compliment your own promotions, as well as the opportunity to meet and network with other artists and groups. The festival has been running since 2009 and has grown in popularity year on year. We’d love to hear from friends new and old to put together another wondrous collection of creative delights!
