How can we best ensure that children and young people have access to high quality and wide ranging participatory music, dance, drama and art experiences?

There is to be a review of the primary and secondary National Curriculum in England.  The Department for Education has launched a ‘call for evidence’ with a closing date of 14th April 2011.

It is important that as many people as possible respond to this and that the voice of those who care about creativity is heard.

CapeUK are hosting two free events to help to clarify the response you wish to make by sharing evidence and information.

Curriculum Review Debate – Implications & Opportunities:

 15 March 2011 – West Yorkshire Carnegie Stand, Headingley, Leed

 16 March 2011 – South Yorkshire Electric Works, Sheffield

For more info call 0845 450 3700 or visit www.capeuk.org

CapeUK has worked with schools, teachers, creative organisations and creative professionals in relation to creativity and learning for the past 12 years.  With a national and international reputation in the field, we are keen to ensure that our education system continues to nurture the creativity of children and young people.



Words and images inspired by the legacy of our coalfields

A Representation of Time
Words and images inspired by the legacy of our coalfields

Friday 11 March 2011
National Coal Mining Museum for England

A special event is being held in association with The Drift, a new exhibition featuring the work of social documentary photographer, Ian Beesley and writer / broadcaster, Ian McMillan. Based around one of the last working pits in the Yorkshire coalfield, The Drift uses photography and poetry to explore the nature of coal mining in the twenty-first century.

This symposium explores the relationship between photography and literature, and through a panel of distinguished speakers the event will show the enduring influence that the northern coalfield continues to have on creative practitioners today.

Cost (including refreshments and exhibition tour) £25. Concessions (students / non-waged) £15.


Art Project seeks walkers to film the Yorkshire Dales…

Walkers of all ages and abilities are wanted to take part in an outdoor arts project, Meander, in the Yorkshire Dales...

Artist duo Shanaz Gulzar and Steve Manthorp, who work together as ADEPT, are recruiting volunteers to walk in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, recording their progress on tiny head-mounted cameras. Participants can just chat, discuss local history, geology, wildlife or anything else they feel may be of interest to others.  If they feel inspired they can be creative - recite poetry, tell a story or even sing a song while walking!

At least two volunteers are needed for each walk, and each pair of recordings will be edited together into a synchronised, split-screen film showing where the wearers were looking and what engaged their interest at every moment.  All films will be made available online so that anyone can enjoy any part of the walk from the participants’ perspective, building up an online video archive of creative walks and interesting places.

Visit the Meander website www.adeptprojects.co.uk

Chrysalis Arts is the commissioner of Meander and the collaborator with Adept in developing the project as part of SLOW ART PROGRESS, a series of ‘slow art’ projects for which Chrysalis Arts received funding from Arts Council England.


Does Leeds have the facilities and resources to attract cultural entrepreneurs, creators and innovators? 

Leeds Salon  would like to invite you to - What is the future of Leeds?
Wednesday 23 February 6:45pm (for a 7pm start) to 8:45pm
The Congreve Room, West Yorkshire Playhouse Quarry Hill, Leeds, LS2 7UP

After two decades of growth and change, Leeds is now at something of a crossroads, in search of direction and identity. While other northern cities have had massive investment and public attention as ‘cities of culture’, hosting international athletic events, and the building or renovation of iconic buildings as national cultural venues, Leeds seems to have been left behind. Development and regeneration seemed to have stuttered even before the recession hit. Find out more www.leedssalon.org.uk
