D.I.Y in LS6

D.I.Y in LS6
Written by Hayley Scott  28/04/2016

I'm  Hayley Scott, a music journalist and DIY music promoter based in Leeds with plans to open a new DIY music venue, record shop, cafe and bar in LS6. Leeds has long been a city that’s fostered a music scene that is as vibrant as it is often overlooked. That’s somewhat changed lately: as ever, beyond the mainstream things are kept quietly underground, but Leeds is increasingly cited as a city that’s synonymous with DIY music, and it’s this attitude of doing things on your own terms that’s keeping our music scene alive and well.It’s important that we have the spaces...

Listen Up! Leeds Young Authors Need You!

Listen Up! Leeds Young Authors Need You!
Written by Emilee Moore De Luca / Leeds Young Authors  28/04/2016

Did you know that a group of young poets from Leeds’ own Leeds Young Authors were placed second in the world at the 2009 Brave New Voices (BNV) International Youth Poetry Festival? That was an incredible achievement for a grassroots, non-profit organisation like LYA and put Leeds on the world youth spoken work poetry map once and for all. You can hear all about the artistic and personal journeys of those young poets in the award-winning documentary, ‘We Are Poets’. In July 2016, Leeds Young Authors are determined to take on the world yet again, and...

LIFF30 Poster: Graham Pilling

LIFF30 Poster: Graham Pilling
Written by Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired  13/04/2016

Introducing Graham Pilling, the fourth of our Leeds Film Festival poster designers. Graham is a graphic artist who produces bold and compelling design and illustration work under the moniker Army of Cats.“I'm fortunate that my work spans a nice mix of client and personal projects. One month I may be working on branding for a startup, and  the next it might be a record cover or t-shirt art. It allows me to have a nice little toolbox of different styles to dip into and it keeps my work interesting – both for me and hopefully its intended audience! I guess I'm...
