Studio12 Summer School

TheseĀ  vibrant images were produced by People In Action participating in Studio12’s Photography Summer School 2009. The week long programme was part funded by Find Your Talent and included practical workshops, gallery visits, portfolio development and led to to an NOCN entry level qualification in Digital Photograph Processing. The group consisted of seven young people with a range of physical and learning disabilities and an exhibition of their work is planned in Central Library later this year. For more information about the exhibition contact Jamie Hutchison at Studio12 0113 3951593.

What was FYT?

Find Your Talent was a national programme to explore new ways of opening up cultural and creative opportunities to young people. Leeds was one of the ten FYT Pathfinders in England.

The programme was led by Leeds City Council and Education Leeds, working closely together and with the city's cultural and community sectors to find ways for more young people to participate in the cultural life of the city.

FYT was funded to operate between 2008-2011 but its legacy in Leeds continues through activities under the Breeze banner, as well as other initiatives.
