The Leeds Summat events aim to gather diverse people from across Leeds and the North to get connected, become inspired, and develop or join action to change the world.
T4P led on hosting two Summats in autumn 2009 and 2011, in partnership with a wide range of partners and volunteers. These popular all-day gatherings (the 2011 one in particular attracted 1300+ people) featured a range of activities, including headline speakers, workshops, networking, food, music, arts, film, sport, and much much more.
They were however a huge amount of work for a small organisation, so we weren’t sure about continuing to churn them out ourselves… So we’re delighted that our friends at Leeds for Change have picked up the baton, hosted a great third Summat in autumn 2014, and are looking at potentially hosting another in 2016! We’re supporting them to do so, but they’re doing the hard work – phew.
