      Leeds Art Fair - transfer of ownership, management and assets





      The Trustees of Service to the Arts and the organising committee of the
      Leeds Art Fair are seeking expressions of interest from appropriate parties
      to take over the ownership, management and development of the Leeds Art
      Fair. The Leeds Art Fair, within the mission and aims of its holding charity
      (Service to the Arts in Leeds) seeks to provide opportunities for art works
      to be encountered in a public place, to facilitate sales of work for local
      and regional artists to sell work, and to contribute to the cultural life of
      Leeds.



      With a long and successful track record of staging the event, it is felt
      that it is time for a change and a new impetus, particularly in the
      relationship of the Fair to contemporary practice, to emerging artists, to
      recent developments in the Leeds artist constituency and infrastructure for
      the visual arts, and the need for a higher profile event not only regionally
      but nationally.



      There is scope for a new initiative to explore wider funding opportunities.
      There are core assets of £10 to 12K available to contribute to this process
      from reserves, a number of exhibition screens, as well as considerable
      goodwill, experience and working relationships (for example in the
      production of the Leeds Art Fair catalogue, which in recent years has been
      particularly welcomed by participating artists).



      Expressions of interest are welcome from partnerships, consortia, and
      individuals, particularly those who can demonstrate experience and an actual
      or potential infrastructure that would support the organisation and future
      vision and development of the Leeds Art Fair. In the first instance, a
      statement of interest should be sent to Andrew Wade (Chairman), Moor House,
      Burley Woodhead, Ilkley or by e mail <mailto:awade@...>
      awade@... or to Jane Green ,(Administrator) at
      <mailto:janegreen48@...> janegreen48@... by the 24th July.
      An indication should be given of relevant background and experience, your
      interest in Leeds Art Fair and your general ideas for its future
      development. For further information on Leeds Art Fair please see
