The Art Hostel is a fully functioning backpackers’ hostel that is designed, created and run by artists for curious travellers.
We're excited to release our open call for the Art Hostel Leeds, which is a project we have nurtured and grown for six years!
Between October 2020 - March 2021 we will install up to seventeen new commissions that respond to the building and its location, the history and culture of the neighbourhood, how it will function as a venue and our values associated with hospitality, the circular economy and FUN!
We are looking for artists, designers, makers and inventors who can help us create a unique, absorbing and playful environment that is both accessible and sustainable.
Each commission will:
• Embrace the Art Hostel and its visitors, volunteers and staff
• Be site specific and value experience and product equally
• Enhance the visitor experience by introducing them to innovative, thought provoking and playful ideas
• Make the Art Hostel a new, unique and surprising experience
