Flowing towards our future

 We would like to invite you to experience our new audio immersive tour in Meanwood Park!


A group of Theatre and Performance students from the University of Leeds (in collaboration with XR Leeds) have created an audio walk, set within the Meanwood Valley Trail, exploring our relationship to the environment and potential future. The walk encompasses audio, text and visual material and is available for you to experience at your own pace – please remember to download the app and content (instructions below) when you have access to internet and bring your headphones for the best experience. 

Without giving too much away … the performance presents two possible futures: 
1. Where we take the action needed to end the climate crisis,
and the other) Where we don’t.

We have recent piloted the experience on the 14th of May 2021 and I can confirm it’s an amazing tour and could be a great tool for opening conversations and changing people’s mindsets towards the Climate Crisis.

The walk begins at the car park of the Three Cottages Café at LS6 4LT.
