Find Your Talent have funded the youth strand of the EXPO festival which is taking place in Leeds this year. EXPO is a national free festival of sound art and experimental music and runs from the 25th to the 29th September.
Young people from across the city have worked with sonic artists to create their own pieces of artwork. These projects have given the young people the unique opportunity to exhibit their artwork alongside international artists.
Gifted and talented year 6 pupils from Morley primaries worked with Glenn Boulter, sonic artist and Sarah Shaw, Head of Music at Bruntcliffe High School to create an audio trail of the exhibits at Leeds City Museum.
Artist Mira Calix worked with young people from South Leeds High School to explore the visual and audio effects of sound by combining unlikely objects such as rice and marbles with bass speakers.
In Seacroft Manston young people from the David Young Community Academy worked with arts organisation Heads Together to create a ‘domestic symphony’ based around the back-to-back kitchen in Leeds City Museum.
We are offering free training (normally costing £130) to relevant professionals to increase the availability of Arts Award programmes for young people in the city.
Three one day training events and a two-part ‘twilight’ course have been scheduled over the next two months. In addition to this free training opportunity up to £60 can be claimed for staff cover (schools/organisations) or attendance expenses (individuals/freelance).
One-day Arts Award Adviser Training days will be held on:
Friday 12 June at The West Park Centre
Tuesday 30 June at Morley Library
Monday 6 July at David Young Community Academy
Two twilight sessions will take place at West Yorkshire Playhouse on:
Monday 8 June
