Welcome to the Breeze Arts Festival is an exciting

festival of events for Leeds, with nine days packed full of activities for 11 – 19 year olds, celebrating the creativity of young people across the city.

Breeze Arts Festival management team performances and workshops. Our role has been to ensure there are activities everyone can enjoy, ranging from dance and visual arts to film and creative writing. We’ve had a great experience and our highlights were: choosing a band from the AMP Awards for Breeze on Briggate; creative marketing sessions; devising a line-up of events and choosing projects that we thought you would enjoy. We hope you enjoy it and hope to see you there! Contact us on breezeartsfestival@leeds.gov.uk if you want to get involved next year or if you have any comments or questions about the 2014 festival. Cara-Mia, Darcey, Estelle, Holly, Lauren, Phoebe, Sam, Summer, Zakiya and staff Helen and Fran.

Hi, we’re the Breeze Arts Festival management team, a group of young people aged 11 to 19 years. This year we’ve come together to bring you a brilliant, diverse and exciting festival. Our aim is to ensure that young people’s voices are heard in organising the festival. We believe it is important for young people to be able to showcase their talents and creativity through
