New Breeze Arts project starts today

We’re really excited about starting our Breeze Arts project funded by Leeds City Council this evening. Leeds City College is hosting weekly sessions throughout May, June and July as we work with a group of young people to create a new piece of performance inspired by African heritage in the city.

Joe Williams, creator of Heritage Corner, instigated this project which combines heritage and the arts and aims to introduce young people to some of the lesser known, but fascinating stories from Africa, Asia and the Caribbean that feature in our City’s history. These stories will be the start point for creative exploration, and the participants, led by Khadijah Ibrahiim, David Hamilton and Christella Litras, will be building skills in performance, spoken word, devised theatre, dance and music.

The performance of this new work will take place on Thursday 23 July at Leeds City College. Visit the project page below for booking details. Tickets are free.
