The first Find Your Talent supported Leeds & Yorkshire Hub Early Arts Professional Development Day will take place at Leeds’ Discovery Centre on Thursday 29 April 2010.

Find Your Talent will be championing the early years sector through the Early Arts pathfinder.

Earlyarts Professional Development Days are for arts, cultural and early years professionals who want to explore creative practices in their work with young children and families. The workshops will teach excellent practice skills, explore case studies and will provide an opportunity for attendees to create their own networks within this field of practice.

There will be presentations and discussions on two local creative learning projects Linking Libraries and Localities and Creative Partnerships in Early Years. Two practical workshops will cover Accessing Early Years Education in Museums and Galleries  and a consultation session will be held by Ruth Churchill Dower (of Earlyarts) where attendees can contribute their ideas on what Leeds needs in creative practice for early years.
