Local App: Leav

Leav team

While Northern Spark initiates participants in both our cities’ landscape and our local art scene for one jam-packed night, the creators of the new app Leav are hoping to extend those discoveries to your daily life. And how better than through your smartphone? Thanks to a grant from the McKnight Foundation, Leav allows you to view installations, hear songs, and watch dancers on your phone, but only while in specific locations (sometimes at specific times), for free. Street artist Hottea, musician Chris Koza, and author Andy Sturdevant have already created app-exclusive works for the program’s launch on June 14—the same day as Northern Spark.
