EXPO festival

Find Your Talent has funded the youth strand of the EXPO festival which is taking place in Leeds this year.

25th September 2009 - 29th September 2009

EXPO is a national free festival of sound art and experimental music and runs from 25 to 29 September.

Young people from across the city have worked with sonic artists to create their own pieces of artwork. These projects have given the young people the unique opportunity to exhibit their artwork alongside international artists.

Gifted and Talent year 6 pupils from Morley primaries worked with Glenn Boulter, sonic artist and Sarah Shaw, Head of Music at Bruntcliffe High School to create an audio trail of the exhibits at Leeds City Museum.

Artist Mira Calix worked with young people from South Leeds High School to explore the visual and audio effects of sound by combining unlikely objects such as rice and marbles with bass speakers.

In Seacroft Manston young people from the David Young Community Academy worked with arts organisation Heads Together to create a ‘domestic symphony’ based around the back-to-back kitchen in Leeds City Museum.
