FYT popped along to First Floor to meet some of the young people using the space and to hear what they think about it. First Floor is West Yorkshire Playhouse’s new creative place where 12-19 year olds can take part in art, music and performing arts activities. During the visit, we met some enthusiastic and vibrant young people participating in a drama session as part of their Breeze Arts Foundation Course. The group are all working towards Arts Awards as part of their creative development.

It was fantastic to see so much talent and creativity in the room and FYT are looking forward to hearing about the group’s next steps. First Floor offers weekend drop-in sessions for young people in different artforms throughout the year.

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.
