During November Leeds Find Your Talent took part in two knowledge sharing events with the other ten FYT pathfinders. The events were a great opportunity to see how the national picture was fitting together and hear about some more inspiring ways of how other areas were delivering the cultural offer to children and young people. The events were documented by illustrator Dan Porter who somehow managed to transform our hastily scribbled flipchart notes into fantastic pen drawings.

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.
