It’s fun, relaxed and practical and you’ll get to make new friends, as well as learn new transferable skills you can take into employment or studying.

Our latest course starts from Tuesday, 11 January 2022 for six sessions at the Collective art space in Armley Community Hub, Stocks Hill, Armley.

It looks at the basics of photography, video and writing articles.

And it takes you through writing headlines, where to find news, how to record basic video, podcasting and more. It’s led by experienced journalist and lecturer John Baron, who is editor and co-founder of West Leeds Dispatch.

And the great thing is it’s free to join! Plus – you’ll become part of a growing movement of community reporters across West Leeds.

Book your place – and get more information – here.

A big thanks to our friends at Collective, part of the Highrise Project, for allowing us to share their space!
