In the heart of Leeds, a magical convergence of stories, technology, and poetry is unfolding, and at the forefront of this extraordinary endeavor is D3 – a Maker of Noise, speaking for the voiceless in society. In the enchanting world crafted by the acclaimed poet, activist, and artist Xabiso Vili, the Guardians of Leeds have emerged as stewards of narratives that transcend the boundaries of reality.

Conceived by the visionary mind of Xabiso Vili, the Guardians of Leeds is a celebration of unheard perspectives that invites us to question how the stories we share shape our reality. This unique initiative is not just an art project; it is a living, breathing testament to the power of storytelling to transform our understanding of the world around us.

At the heart of the Guardians of Leeds lies a fusion of poetry, augmented reality, and illustration, with QR codes throughout the City where you can listen to spoken word and find out more about the Guardians. These elements, seamlessly woven together, create an immersive experience that blurs the lines between the tangible and the fantastical. It is a celebration of the rich tapestry of narratives that make Leeds a city of diverse voices and untold tales.

D3’s role goes beyond the conventional boundaries of artistry; it is a guardian with a mission to amplify the voices that may have been overlooked. By navigating the intersection of technology and magic, D3 transforms the cityscape into a canvas where stories unfold in unexpected ways, challenging our perceptions and expanding our collective consciousness.

In the realm of the Guardians of Leeds, poetry becomes a catalyst for change. D3’s verses echo through the streets, resonating with the heartbeat of the city. Each carefully crafted line is an invitation to explore, question, and reimagine the narratives that define our shared reality. Through poetry, D3 invites us to engage in a dialogue that transcends the ordinary, inviting us to participate in the co-creation of a new narrative for Leeds.
