The artwork is made up of six boxes with laser-cut shapes in the side, through which lights are shone. The boxes are themed around city life and include recorded sounds such as the stallholders at Leeds Kirkgate Market.

James Hill, director of Pyramid of Arts, said: “They are very excited about going to Luxembourg and it proves Leeds artists with learning disabilities can compete on an international level.”

Pyramid of Arts involves a team of 40 staff and volunteers working with 70 artists with disabilities.
