Last night I was invited to be a Facilitator for a group who hopes to build a Mobile Arts Teaching and Performance Center (Legacy 166) It seeks to assemble and utilize an ambitious crew of designers and experts which will put together a Leeds "Green" building to educate and promote art, drama, lighting, dance, audio, video and recording for young people offering them the chance to obtain a degree in those fields. I participated in underlining the equipment and acoustics necessary to help determine the process.
