Leadworks is an exciting and innovative social enterprise that thinks outside the box. Created in 2019 when the need for more creative, flexible and accessible spaces for grassroots arts and community organisations was realised, Leadworks is focussed on community connection and transformation.
Our first project based in Stonehouse, Plymouth, saw the community renovation of a disused lead paint warehouse which gave us our name. Our doors now house a cafe and bar, public living room and library, community fridge, six afforable artists studios, a makers area, a music and performance stage, meeting and workshop rooms, a cinema space, and two dynamic exhibition spaces. We are proud to have created an open, dynamic and welcoming space that celebrates difference and connection.
We’re passionate about supporting other grassroots organisations and local creatives to showcase what they are about and we work closely with our friends and neighbours to celebrate the rich history and diversity that the Stonehouse peninsula is renowned for.
