Quarry Arts

Creative projects by local children and adults as part of the Quarry Arts scheme.

Quarry Arts engages with communities for creative and performing arts inspired by quarries changing public perceptions.
Yorkshire Quarry Arts was established in the University of Leeds in 2003 and its projects were funded by the Minerals Industry Research Organisation (MIRO) and Natural England through Defra’s Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund. Appreciation of the quarries has been underpinned by understanding of the geology of the quarried landscape and throughout our projects geologists have provided insight into the quarries that have inspired our creative activities.Quarry Arts runs arts clubs for local children and adults and some of their work can be purchased in Gingerbugs and Co.
