Meet The Team

We are essentially a small team of 2 directors that deal with all the legal, governance and development matters as well as the day to day organisation to ensure we offer a professional market, that's fun to be a part of and provides a quality offer of original creative goods to Leeds shoppers. Though as we work closely with our traders the true 'team' is really much much larger. The Artsmix Directors are:

Jonathan has been involved with Artsmix for over 10 years. He has a varied business background, beside his interests in Artsmix he works as a marketing and business development consultant and for a community based organisation aligned to Bradford Council, responsible for enterprise development. It is Jonathan who deals with the general running of Artsmix and works most closely with the people who trade with us, he is always happy to get feedback from traders and/or visitors.
