The Find Your Talent team had a great day taking part in The Store at the West Park Centre yesterday. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet and connect with a huge range freelance artists, arts organisations and teachers.

There was a great buzz to the day with performances from young people and practitioners throughout the event. The Store is an annual event hosted and programmed by Artforms and has become a key networking date for teachers and Leeds’ cultural sector. As well as making friends with this amazing Griffin (made by artist Naomi Parker),  Find Your Talent signed up over fifty artists and arts organisations to the Culture Network.

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.
