Beyond Festival Launch
Yesterday Beyond Arts held its launch event at Arts@Trintiy for the 2016 Festival.
Beyond will be a new festival for Leeds in 2016 celebrating work of artists, performers and musicians with learning disabilities.
This year the launch event featured works by members of all the partner organisations: Pyramid of Arts, Interplay, Ability (Northern Ballet), The Bridge, First Floor, Artlink West Yorkshire, Purple Patch Arts, The Tetly, Ultimate Thunder, Tenfold, The Arts & Minds Network and Arts@Trinity
There were around 200 visitors during the day and evening private view that were all excited and really liked the exhibition as these comments (among others) show:
„Fantastic! Love it, beautiful work, great to see this celebrated in Leeds“
“Brilliant – made me laugh so much! Spot on!”
“Loved how everything is so colourful and bright – great exhibition!”
“Particularly loved being taken on a narrative with the mood frog. Also think the films pull together the whole exhibition – great to see some of the stuff animated. Look forward to next year!”
“What a BRILLIANT celebration of work across the city! Thank you! First Floor Team.”
“REALLY looking forward to 2016!!”
“A great event. Fantastic art work. 2016 is going to be awesome! The Bridge. X”
