Open Source Arts opened as a volunteer and resource centre for those affected by the devastating boxing day floods in Kirkstall in 2015. Volunteers donated time, money, food and a warehouse full of items.

Since the flood, we have organised regular volunteer days with the local community. The amazing efforts from the volunteers have cleaned up vast swathes of the riverside from the flood debris, and we continue to find and clean up the rubbish from the waterways.
