RISE & SHINE: A creative awakening
‘RISE & SHINE is a party for the mind, heart and soul. A platform to share in real human experiences, to learn from each other and to celebrate the true importance of togetherness through a variety of creative and expressive mediums.’
And indeed that is what it achieved…
We had the pleasure of being part of the team to bring you a new and exciting initiative for the city. Seeing it unfold over the weekend was amazing and it was great to see people coming together with shared principles in an open and inclusive event, pioneering a new type of festival in Leeds. And of course being able to help raise funds and awareness of the global refugee crisis was the cherry on the top.
RISE & SHINE events will run quarterly throughout 2016, raising both awareness for those who need to have their stories heard and funds to help improve their quality of life.
This first all day event hosted guest speakers, live music, DJ sets, spoken word, creative workshops, an art & craft market, art auction, vintage clothes shop, live artwork, short film documentaries, hot street food and much more.

This is the dawn of the CREATIVE AWAKENING!
