Following the success of L17 and L18, Leeds International Festival will return in May 2019.
For L19, the festival is evolving its structure to present two distinct programmes: a CORE programme and an OFF programme. The CORE will continue the festival’s theme of new ideas and innovation, bringing some of the world’s leading thinkers, innovators and pioneers to Leeds to explore new ideas about both the world of today and the future. The OFF programme will focus on giving local creators an international platform to showcase new and experimental works, creating a vibrant, unpredictable and eclectic programme of fringe events across the city.
We believe a festival like LIF should be collaborative, open and inclusive. In this spirit we are opening up two of our CORE programme slots and our entire OFF programme to an open call. If you’d like to be a part of L19, we’d love to hear from you.MORE INFO
