The BEYOND Festival was officially launched this year with an opening event on June 13th at Room 700 at Leeds Library. Artlink hosted a workshop and led performances by LiLAC members, showcasing some of their work which took place on the GET STARTED project. We also exhibited a selection of large images from the project which have been on display throughout the festival.
Artlink also attended the lively and inspirational BEYOND Symposium which took place at The Tetley. The event included workshops and presentations by Mick Ward (Chief Officer for Adult Social Care, Leeds) and artists from Cooperations, Wiltz, Luxembourg.
BEYOND sees many organisations working together for the first time to celebrate the work they do. It is an opportunity for people with learning disabilities and their friends and families to find out more about the huge range of arts activity available to them.
Information about all of the events is on the BEYOND website. You can view a few images from the festival below.
