So this year I was a bona fide Arts Support Assistant and Visitor Guide at the annual culturebash that is Light Night Leeds. Playing out my deepest chaperoning fantasies proved to be some fun – watching the Great Big Paintings enabled by the fancy folk of the Garforth Arts Festival was a particular high point. That was a very popular piece, and the only one I actually remembered to photograph. But of course I lost my memory card immediately after this, so no one will ever see the lovingly crafted digital painting of Adventure Time’s Finn the Human projected onto the side of Leeds’ Art Gallery through the lens of this gal’s camera. Shame – it was a beautiful thing.
Volunteering errywhere in a bid to know Leeds, and force Leeds to know me.
