Horizon Moment at Transform 23

We are so pleased you can join us for the Horizon Moment at Transform 23.

Taking place in Leeds, Transform is one of the most urgent international platforms in the UK. Featuring epic spectacles on big stages and intimate encounters in unusual spaces, this future-gazing festival explores how we might live differently in the future.

Full details of the festival programme can be found here:

Horizon is a development programme that supports England-based artists to internationalise their practice. Through showcasing, residencies and bursaries, Horizon has supported more than 250 artists and creatives to connect with more than 100 international presenters, catalysing new relationships and supporting international exchange.

Horizon is commissioned by Arts Council England and delivered by Battersea Arts Centre, FABRIC, Fierce, GIFT, MAYK and Transform.

As part of Transform 23, we are curating a special journey for international delegates to connect with a group of Horizon supported artists, all of whom have a strong connection to Transform and its programme. 

More information on the artists and schedule can be found below.

We look forward to seeing you in Leeds!
