Leigh Square Community Arts Village
Leigh Square Community Arts Village honours art in all its forms, from handmade woodcarvings to flamenco-dance interpretations of Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales. The complex’s three buildings reflect its broad focus. The band shell, a glass-covered outdoor stage, hosts live music and dance performances and is a site of pilgrimage for international snow-globe makers. The indoor exhibition space houses visual-art exhibits, and the complex’s final building, a refurbished post office, serves as a workroom where creative minds can craft new works.
