Items from Leeds collectors including cats’ whiskers, drum-kits and models of hands have been re-fashioned into a set of artworks for Museums in People’s Homes, a portable museum which will be featured at the festival.
The second confirmed exhibition is part of a national project to make the 34,000 payphones across the UK ring at once.
The audio experience Pick Me Up (& hold me tight) explores how people listen to each other and will see all of Leeds’ public phone boxes ring at 11am each day during the festival.
