Carnival Mural Launch Party

Visual artist and costume designer Rhian Kempadoo-Millar has completed a mural in Chapeltown, which celebrates the rich, vibrant history of Leeds West Indian Carnival.

The public artwork – commissioned by East Street Arts in partnership with the Carnival Committee and Leeds City Council – was developed in summer of 2023, ahead of the 56th year of the iconic carnival.

A launch party to celebrate the official unveiling of the mural will take place at the Leeds West Indian Centre, next to the mural, from 12pm to 3pm on Saturday 28 October.

Join Rhian, East Street Arts and the Leeds West Indian Carnival committee for food, dance, music, and family activities.
