What is a Summat? Politicians are always heading off to summits about important issues. The creation of the Leeds Summat in 2009 gave normal people the chance to discuss these issues too, but in a much more fun, more Yorkshire way! It’s neither a conference, nor a festival, nor a meeting. It’s a Summat!
The Leeds Summat Gathering was held on Saturday 26th November 2011 from 9am to 9pm. An amazing 1,300 people attended. The Summat was hosted by a partnership of local organisations, including Tidal. Tidal ran an all day activity – ‘Mappiness: the online playpen for Leeds global activism mapping’.
