A group of people interested in art, design, and making with biology in Leeds and West Yorkshire.

BioLeeds is a collective name for anything and everything that anyone wants to contribute and is open to anyone who wants to be involved. Participants so far have included scientists, an architect, a textile designer, hardware hackers and several artists.

I initiated bioLeeds and am the main organiser. So far members of the group have brewed beer, organised a guerilla art studio in the corner of a pub, run two market stalls, designed fabrics and new architecture.

bioLeeds is a daughter project of Superposition, the long-standing self-organised network and space for artists, makers and scientists to collaborate in West Yorkshire. BioLeeds and Superposition always welcome new participants.
