RUN! RUN! RUN! LEEDS is a series of practice-related research activities exploring the correlation between art and movement co-run by Dr Kai Syng Tan with Dr Dan Robinson.

Kai is a Junior Research Fellow, while Dan is Senior Lecturer of Fine Art Media and Cluster Leader of the Crossing Borders Research Cluster. Other than running, activities may include reading, discussion, film screening, as well as other physical activities including swimming, fencing, rowing, cycling, and kung-fu!  In other words, apart from making great art and doing serious teaching and research, we also engage in fun and sweaty activities, which may in turn energise and inspire our work in the art studio or office in direct and indirect ways. The activities of RUN! RUN! RUN! LEEDS are open to every body: students, staff, members of the public, friends, foes, strangers. We meet every last Wednesday of the month, over lunch and after work.
