Arts Together

Arts Together is an online guide of events including performances, exhibitions and workshops in Leeds and beyond. Aimed at community groups who might usually encounter barriers to engagement. They believe that engaging in the arts can be enjoyable, inspiring, illuminating and even life-changing.

We created a modern, clean, and user-friendly website that allows visitors to easily search for events. The website offers multiple search options such as browsing, calendar, category, or venue based on accessibility. The interface is designed to cater to a wide range of audience types, making the site engaging and easy to navigate. To provide relevant events, we used the Leeds Inspired API and built a partner login so that all venues can easily add content.

Client testimonial

We can't recommend Maraid highly enough. They understood the priorities for Arts Together from the very first meeting; that it was a community project to help people find performances and events in the Greater Leeds area that was accessible, affordable and suitable for their specific needs. So they knew that the site had to be easy to navigate, lovely to look at, and accessible, within our budget constraints. There are more functions we would like to add in the future and they were very happy to make sure the site was designed to allow these possibilities, plus they kept us informed of how it was being designed every step of the way. Since it was first launched, there have been updates to the API from the site that send us the events data and Maraid were really helpful in liaising directly with them to make sure that the updates were seamless. And we love the fact that they only choose to work on projects that they believe in - something that we feel resonates with the ethos of Arts Together.
