AGES 13-19
 6 – 9 June, 2012

Part of Breeze International Youth Festival in partnership with Leeds Met University

OPINION is a wonderful opportunity for enthusiastic, engaged, open and creative students (13-19 yr olds) who have something to say or want to learn how to have something to say. The art workshops will involve discussion and explore a variety of media

photography, blogging, drawing, film making, painting, composing text, banner-making, gardening, shouting, dancing, collage, clay-modelling, facebook, noise making, tweeting

The venues are fantastic: for the first 3 days (Wednesday 6th June-Friday 8th June) we will be in the heart of Leeds Met University's Becket's Park Campus at the Landscape Resource Centre

The sessions are 4hours long. 10am-2pm Please bring some lunch with you! Lunch will be part of the session a break and time to relax and develop friendships maybe....

On Saturday 9th June we will make and display an exhibition in Leeds Town Hall. This workshop will run from 10am-1pm and at 2pm we will open to the public!

The workshops are free. You don't need any prior experience, but you must book in advance for each day you wish to attend

We have already started a blog about the project so please take a look. Here there are maps and further information.

Journey planning
From the city centre, you should allow 30 minutes to get to the LRC (if driving or cycling) and 45 minutes if you are on the bus (just to be on the safe side).
Campus service busses 92 and 28A run from Woodhouse Lane (bus stop opposite Broadcasting Place) directly to the Leeds Met HeadingleyCampus. Other bus services drop off on the OtleyRoad. You should allow 15 –20 minutes to walk from the OtleyRoad to the LRC.
Routes Around the City
Inner Ring Road.
This road is designed to route traffic away from the centre of Leeds. The main stretch runs in a semi-circle from west (A58(M)) to east (A64(M)). In the west, it connects with the M621 J2 via the ArmleyGyratory and A643; in the east, it connects with M621 J4 via the A61.
Routes to the University
Civic Quarter
From the M621 follow Meadow Rd, Victoria Rd and Neville St to City Square. This is City Centre Loop junction 1. Continue until junction 4 (Civic Hall). Keep left and the City Campus buildings will be 400 yards along on the right (beyond the Civic Hall).
HeadingleyCampus (post code LS6 3QS)
From Motorways, start as above. As you reach the Civic Hall, and before you come to the CalverleyStreet buildings, turn right onto Portland Way. At the top of Portland Way, turn left onto the A660. Continue on the A660 for about 4 miles. HeadingleyCampus is signposted to your left (please note the sign is marked Beckett Park Campus).
LRC visitors should use the ChurchwoodEntrance (staffed barriers). From the City Centre –go past the BP garage on the A660 (OtleyRoad) and turn left after the pedestrian crossing. From the ring road (A6210) –go past the Village Hotel, through the traffic lights and turn right before the pedestrian crossing.
Bike parking is available at the LRC. There is the pay and display car park at the Churchwoodentrance. Unusual circumstances can be accommodated by liaising with CARES on 01138128585.

Please explain the project further...
Sorry for late response

Our main aim
In designing the project was to give young people an opportunity to debate/discuss/find out what they think about stuff....or discover what they don't have an opinion about.....

All the materials/modes if expression will be possible workshops but....

Activities will be participant led
So a topic/subject will be chosen during the first part of a Vegetarianism then a mode of discussion will be explored eg.clay
The debate or discussion or exchange if ideas will be through the chosen medium
However each session will be open to rethinking redirecting abandonment blah blah
Basically if it isn't going well or ideas dry up we will choose a new topic or medium or both and the participants will all have a choice/say/opportunity toexpress their expectations of the session
The sessions are 4hours long! So lunch will be part of the session a break and time to relax and develop friendships maybe....
The space we have at Leeds met is really brilliant it's where they teach landscape architecture with indoor amd outdoor spaces so it will be great for young people to be part of the leeds met campus but also quite hidden away

Anyway my trains arrived so better send this to you before I lose the email

Is this easier to understand ?
Please get back to
Me what you think
Hope Fridays being a fun day
