Lydia Cottrell recorded on 05/05/2022

Lydia Cottrell is a dancer, artist, black metal make up social media influencer and a social media consultant. At the time of recording Lydia was also the Communications and Engagement Manager at Compass Live Arts.

Every two years Compass Festival animates the city of Leeds with interactive live art projects in public spaces. This year they have commissioned five exuberant and playful encounters made with and for the people of Leeds.

This year between 18th – 27th November, Compass invites you to share your best piece of advice, take a journey on an afro futurist spaceship, delve into a surreal soundscape in a familiar place, eat your way through Caribbean ancestry and help us answer the question: ‘What are the flavours of Leeds?’.

Join Compass at Kirkgate Market, St John’s Centre and at a host of supermarkets across the city, to rediscover and reimagine the everyday, right where you live, work and play. All of the events are FREE, some you will come across and be able to get involved straight away, some have limited capacity and for Wondermart you need to reserve a time-slot.
