The Leap is all about supporting community-led culture in Bradford and Keighley. We are a Creative People and Places programme enabling arts and culture for everyone, everywhere across our District.

We want to increase leadership and participation in arts and culture in Bradford and Keighley. We will do this by reaching out, identifying and supporting passionate individuals and groups who are motivated to lead on new cultural and creative activity.

We're committed to helping communities become a valued and vibrant part of Bradford District’s cultural ecology. That means using our experience, connections and insight to break down the barriers preventing community led culture from fulfilling its potential, helping change Bradford District for the better.
