Who We Are
Leeds Creative Time Bank facilitates and strengthens the informal economy between creative professionals. We exchange skills and knowledge by using time as a currency. One hour of your skill equates to one hour of another members.
Established in 2010, there are now more than 180 active members with over 3500 hours traded. Using an online database system serviced by timebrokers earning hour credits, the timebank is autonomous and self-perpetuating. It supports new relationships and collaborations across artform, context and practice and builds the capacity of the network in Leeds and beyond. This model is transferable and is being used by creative communities in other UK cities.
