We are thoroughly pleased to have secured funding through the #IWill scheme managed by Wakefield Community Foundation. In 2019 support through #IWill enabled us to create our #YoungTeam pilot and the new run of funding sits alongside support from Arts Council England to allow us to expand our offer. As well as developing the Arts Award Silver Level #YoungTeam (equivalent to a GCSE) we will now also develop and deliver a Discover Level programme, a more entry level experience that can form part of Long Division Festival itself, or other events across the region. In total we will be growing from delivering to ten young people up to sixty.
Thank you to everyone involved in the #IWill projects and we’re excited to continue to grow our educational work. More info on #YoungTeam can be found here.
