Community Engagement


Leeds Museums and Galleries collections are there to be enjoyed by everyone.

The Community Engagement team works across our nine sites with community groups in different ways, exploring their connections with the city past and present. We run a varied programme of activities which includes; projects, displays, films, oral histories, workshops, talks and events.

We also have an outreach service where people who cannot easily visit our sites can experience museum objects through handling sessions.

Get in touch: If you would like to know more about our community programme, or explore ways in which your community can be represented in our sites, then contact the Community Engagement Manager Gabrielle Hamilton (email:

Contemporary Collecting

Our  team is committed to collecting objects and stories that reflect contemporary Leeds people and our city’s diverse communities. We are always looking to gather more people-focused material to add to our growing digital and object collections.
