pledged of £9,014

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

We aim to raise funds to purchase, ship and install Leeds skater Joe Moore's 'Joe Moore Signature' skate obstacles from The American Ramp Company in Missouri. One will be sited at The Works Skatepark in homage to an inspirational hero of the Leeds Skate scene and one will be sited in the local urbanside spaces of Leeds South Bank. We propose that the South Bank obstacle will be a main feature along a linked pathway leading skaters, scooter riders and BMX riders from the city centre, through a series of dual purpose skateable garden architecture and street furniture to the Works. All contributors will receive a prize as follows : £5-10 = Free entry to the Launch Event planned for Halloween 2018 with chance to be the first to ride the Joe Moore Signature Ramp £10 - 20 = As above + a free sticker pack and commemorative poster £20 - 50 = As above + a free commemorative T-shirt £50 or over = As above + a free commemorative skate deck signed by Joe Moore

What we'll deliver:

  • One 'Joe Moore Signature - Coffin' sited at The Works Skatepark
  • One 'Joe Moore Signature - Kick Tail' sited urbanside in Leeds South Bank

Why it's a great idea:

Joe Moore has been skating the streets of Leeds in his inimitable style for years. He has dedicated hours and hours and hours for the love of his sport and for the pursuit of a creative excellence over and above what is believable. The Works is lucky enough to be his home skatepark and we would like to celebrate this fact. Joe's talent, resillience and dedication is an inspiration to thousands (44,000 Insta followers for a start) and for that we thank him, as young people in Leeds need rolemodels like Joe. Leeds is about to double the size of its city centre with a development called South Bank which will link the outer reaches of South Leeds to the opportunity and prosperity at the centre. By doing this, parks, gardens, communal spaces, artworks, walkways and cycle routes will blossom, handing back whole areas of the city to its people. We'd love to make alternative sport and youth culture part of the street architecture for shared purpose and mutual benefit.
