The MillSpace is a community gallery situated within Leeds Industrial Museum. The purpose of the gallery is to encourage creativity and to provide a space for people to express themselves and tell their stories.
The space is open to groups, organisations, clubs, families and anyone else who wishes to use it for community purposes. This could be for a group meeting or event, an area for staging activities or creating a display.
Our offer is open to all community groups regardless of age, background or ability.

In late December last year Leeds experienced the most significant floods since records began. Stormy weather, saturated ground, and high river levels led to severe flooding across many parts of the city, particularly along the River Aire. The museums at Thwaite Mills and at Armley Mills were badly affected, along with people’s lives, businesses, and homes.
The exhibition has been co-curated by the people of Leeds to mark the event one year on and would not have been possible without their contributions. The photographs, stories, and artistic responses have all come from them.
