We are at a JUNCTION

junction box

JUNCTION is a series of temporary commissions for Leeds City centre utilising the ubiquitous ‘junction box’ as its canvas. Everyday we walk by these neglected metal boxes without a second thought, but now JUNCTION offers artists and designers the chance to transform these tired boxes into vibrant, intriguing and humorous interventions in street life.

JUNCTION is a new project initiated by Situation Leeds and is the first step in our commitment to raise the public art profile of the city. Over the next few years we hope to widen the JUNCTION project to other sites across the city and identify other exciting opportunities to work creatively with the urban fabric of the city centre. We believe that the ‘everyday’, could be a lot more intriguing, and we see JUNCTION as a first step to attract interest, support and sponsorship for further creative public realm projects that will make walking round Leeds City Centre more interesting, extraordinary and pleasurable.

The closing date for the submission of ideas is 26th April 2011. For more details email nicola@theculturecompany.co.uk , visit The Culture Company website or download pdf here for more details:

Situation Leeds is a key project of Leeds Met Gallery and Studio Theatre which is working in partnership with The Culture Company to curate and deliver JUNCTION.
