"Creating the Future"

ArtForms is the music and arts team within Children's Services at Leeds City Council. We believe that all young people in the city have an entitlement to a rich and exciting range of arts, music and cultural activities.

Offering expertise and resources and working in partnership with other cultural organisations in Leeds, we support high quality learning opportunities in and through the arts.
