A 12-month programme of coaching and training for people committed to developing creativity in the communities around Leeds.


We are arranging a series of informal meetings (and attending some pre-existing events) to give people who are interested a chance to talk about UNION Leeds with members of the organising team. It’s a chance to find out more and think through how the programme might fit in with your own learning journey and future plans.

These sessions are open for anyone to join in person and there will be a chance to zoom in to the session if you prefer:
