Dérive in Leeds
November 20, 9:00 am - 8:00 pm
‘Dérive in Leeds’ is a one-day creative experiential process in which you will be encouraged to wander around the city of Leeds and capture, using any media, the essence of your walk. Based on Guy Debord’s concept of experimental behaviour (1956), ‘Dérive’ is an unplanned journey through an urban landscape in which you let yourself be guided by the terrain and the encounters you make during the whole process. You will choose your own path around Leeds and reflect on your choices.
The event will run as follows: please meet at Leeds Trinity University at 09:30 for an introduction to the project. After the introduction you will wander on foot, car, bikes etc. around Leeds capturing situations you encounter. This process will be unsupervised and you will be able to use any media you are willing to utilise. Once back at the University you will upload art pieces on a dedicated website.
Due to the nature of this event if you have any questions about accessibility we recommend getting in touch directly with the organiser.
