On May 3rd, an open mic fundraising event was hosted by Anne-Marie Atkinson and Akeim Buck to help raise funds for LYA’s Brave New Voices team to go to Washington DC. The event was held at Union 105 East St Arts, as part of Anne-Marie’s and Akeim’s amazing project, ‘What didn’t you do to bury me? But you forgot that I was a seed’.
Almost £200 was raised! The room was packed from start to finish, and performances of people of all ages were fabulous!
An enormous THANKS to Akeim and Anne-Marie for getting behind the local youth! Thank you Chapeltown and people from across Leeds for coming out and supporting us!
