'What is the Leeds Arts Party?
Inspired by Bob and Roberta Smith's 'Art Party' (October 2013) a campaign for Arts Education, our student led event will take the format of a traditional conference, but with a fun and creative twist.
By collaborating with artists, musicians, community arts organisations, performance artists and more: we will explore the theme of sustainability and how the arts are a key element in developing a sustainable future. The arts are a key subject within the National Curriculum in promoting divergent thinking and developing problem solving skills: critical skills for forming solutions for sustainability issues faced in the modern world. The arts are not only important for global sustainability, but also on a personal level too. The arts are a proven method of sustaining positive mental well being, and we believe this should be encouraged throughout education and beyond.
Our event will include guest speakers, discussion forums, workshops as well as exhibitions of work from students, community arts organisations, and artists working around our theme. We will also have entertainment from musicians, spoken word artists, performance artists and more.
I also talked to fran about what exactly I should do for the event. We came up with this list first but there may eventually be more.
Can I confirm we agreed on the following graphic design work so I have a record on email?
