Engaging with our community

Come into our world...

Hidden away just outside of Leeds city centre is a very special playground. Scott Hall Mills is our dedicated studio, venue, workshop and sometimes party palace. It’s our home, but it’s also a space that is open to everyone. We provide space and opportunities for our local community and the wider creative community by throwing open the doors of Scott Hall Mills so they can be inspired, experiment and imagine. Whether it is in providing long-term tenancies; open studio events; workshops or performances; film nights or artist residencies, Scott Hall Mills is more than a building – it’s a community.

Creative Learning

We’re passionate about creating opportunities for budding creatives to learn and discover more about themselves and their practice. Following the principles of inventiveness, curiosity, and resourcefulness we offer a suite of learning opportunities including workshops, lectures for students and even our own programme ‘Designers of the Future’ which aims to help new creatives from underrepresented backgrounds develop skills and knowledge for careers in the creative industries. Whether at our studio or visiting elsewhere we combine up-to-the-moment industry experience with a healthy dose of turbulent anecdotes from our own journey.
