The Breeze Arts Festival is an arts festival for young people aged 11-19, taking place between 19-27 July across Leeds. This year we have been working with a steering group of young people to organise the festival. These nine young people have been meeting with us weekly from January to July to help to plan all different parts of the festival. They have chosen the projects and workshops that make up the festival; have chosen the performers who will play at Breeze on Briggate on Sat 19th July; have been involved in the marketing of the festival and much more.
They have created a video of their experiences which you can see here:
There are lots of different workshops and performance for young people to go to during the festival, everything from animation workshops to film screenings, craft sessions and performance masterclasses. The majority of the workshops and performances are free, but places are filling up quickly! Please go to www.breezeleeds.org/breezeartsfestival to download a copy of the brochure or pick one up from your local library or leisure centre.
We hope you enjoy the festival and hope to see you there!
