A regular meet-up for people who are designing and making public services in and around Leeds.

We find a space, organise the sessions for the meet-up, and invite people along.

Sessions can be talks, workshops, videos, whatever. It's down to earth, kept small(ish), about being open amonsgt ourselves and sharing in a safe space. You will be among friends! And we hope you take something away from the meet-up.

Previously these were run as Public Design WY.

Interested in doing a session at a meet-up? Are you an organisation that has space for 25 or more people and fancies holding a meet-up? Get in touch!

You can keep up to date by following @LeedsGovDesign on Twitter and by subscribing to the email list.
