Find Your Talent is a national programme aiming to discover how all children and young people can be helped to identify and develop their creative talents through access to regular, high quality cultural opportunities.
Leeds is one of ten Find Your Talent pathfinder areas in England and was selected by the government from over 140 initial applications. It aims to develop new partnerships between the arts, education, heritage, voluntary and youth sectors and to provide opportunities for young people aged 0-19 across the city.
New ways of working will be trialled in three target localities while issues such as training, quality assurance, information provision and communication will be addressed citywide. The programme is being managed jointly by Education Leeds and Leeds City Council.
Young people will be at the heart of Find Your Talent, advising and influencing the cultural offer. The project challenges providers to meet children’s needs in more imaginative and better co-ordinated ways, connecting in- and out- of school activities, and making new achievements possible for individuals of all ages and abilities.
