River Stewardship Cleanup

Open Source Arts was impacted in 2015 by the devastating flooding which struck Kirkstall on Boxing Day, and our building flooded. Open Source Arts was central in the volunteer response through the opening and operation of the Volunteer Resource Centre on our premises on Kirkstall Road, to cleanup Kirkstall businesses post flooding. Open Source Arts developed this wonderful volunteer response into the Team Kirkstall River Cleanups Project, which continue to this day every fortnight!

Open Source Arts are also pleased to be working alongside the River Stewardship Company and Groundwork NEWY delivering a programme of weekday river stewardship volunteer days, as part of the Leeds Flood Alleviation Scheme. These weekday sessions will complement the Team Kirkstall cleanup sessions which we will continue to facilitate fortnightly throughout 2019.
