This message is for anyone who is hoping to join us next week for the You Are Here Project for the timber festival in July 2018.
If you have not yet told us that you are looking to join us please contact us (bearing in mind that it is last minute and is aimed at teenagers rather than young children). Next week we will be meeting from Tuesday 13th Feb to Friday 16th Feb at Moira Replan. We will meet at 10 am every day and be finishing at 3 pm with lunch at 12 – 12.30. The day is split into two sessions (morning and afternoon every day). If you are definitely coming and haven’t received a schedule please contact us.
You will require a packed lunch every day. there will be recording equipment for you to use however if you have your own feel free to bring it with you but bear in mind it is by no means a necessity and may get damaged.
We look forward to seeing those of you coming on Tuesday.

A message for all young people aged 13-18 yrs…we have an exciting opportunity coming up, to take part in You Are Here! This is a creative project with Youth Landscapers and artists Jo Wheeler & Rebecca Lee. Together you will map, mix and experiment in making sounds and visuals, which will be presented at the new Timber festival in July.
The first sessions are during the half term, 13-16 Feb, 10am-3pm. Come along and get creative, get technical, get social, get involved, get a good CV!
If you are or are a parent to a young person aged between 13 and 18 then please contact us through our Facebook group (@youthlandscapers) or through our contact page on the blog.
Tonight we had an evaluation session meaning that we basically thought about the future of the group and where we will be in years to come and what we have achieved thus far which is a lot.
The youth landscapers now have a Facebook page you can follow to see updates on our activities including new projects and our contribution to the Timber Festival in July.
