Leicester Heritage Action Zone – Summer Workshop!

Tuesday 17th August, 2021 

Aged 12-16: 10am-12.30pm  

Aged 17-19 1.30-4pm 

Are you looking for something different to get involved in over the Summer Holidays? Want to develop your photography and audio skills? Want to help to make Leicester City Centre a better place? Why not join our Heritage Action Zone session? 

In partnership with Leicester Cultural Quarter, TMC are looking for local young people to get involved in the regeneration of two important roads in Leicester City Centre through creative activity. 

Over four years, Leicester City Council will be working to improve these two roads, Granby Street and Church Gate . As key members of our community, it is vital that young people have their thoughts and opinions heard, exploring these areas through creativity. 

Therefore, TMC are hosting workshops to enable the younger generations of Leicester get involved!  

We will work with you to consult on your opinions before going out into the city to creatively document your perspective of the areas. We will then use the content collected on the walk to curate your very own exhibition at The Gallery at DeMontfort University, supported by local artist Sian Watson Taylor 

The workshop will include:  

  • Photography and audio recording training from industry professionals  
  • Group discussions about the 2 key streets 
  • Going out into Leicester to document the streets as they currently are, using your photography and audio skills  
  • Consultation with artist Sian Watson Taylor 
  • Planning and curation of an exhibition at DMU  

If you’re interested in having your voice heard and making a difference to your city – get involved!  


Deadline: Monday 2 August
