Be More Leeds

Back to top

Introducing Be More Creative, a multi-year celebration of the innovators, mavericks and pioneers fuelling the explosion of creativity across the length and breadth of our country’s cities and regions. We will shine a light on local creativity, what makes different areas unique and how we can collectively help the creative industries to flourish.

We started with Be More Leeds, as Creative England started our journey in the Leeds City Region for an exclusive event exploring and celebrating the creativity, determination and imagination that is fuelling the city, which has an astounding forecasted economic growth of 21% in the next 10 years! Our response? Be More Leeds!
