Leicester Early Arts Partnership (LEAP)

  Leicester Early Arts Partnership (LEAP)

LEAP is a regional pathfinder project of Early Arts and had its launch event at the Curve in Leicester in December 2010.  The partnership includes the SDSA, the Curve and Spark Children’s Art Festival and engages with policy makers, arts practitioners, educators, learners, children and parents.  LEAP disseminates good practice and raises the standards of creative practice in early arts settings.

There are a range of programmes undertaken through the partnership including workforce development events.  Organised by the SDSA, these include high quality creative training sessions such as movement, storytelling and creative play.
