Have you experienced queer joy in Leeds?

Dance artist Melanie Whitehead Smith is inviting members of Leeds’ LGBTQIA+ community to tell us your story and join us at a free dance workshop as part of HERE MARKS THE SPOT.

After sharing your moments of joy, you’ll work with Melanie to transform your story into a piece of solo choreography.

This will be recorded and later developed into a short dance film.

The films will be projected in the locations they’re inspired by as part of Compass Festival 2024.
