Bloom Sessions is a creative project dedicated to young women and those of marginalised genders in Yorkshire.
Co-founded by two friends with a real passion for music, art and diversity – please do come in and get comfortable!
Between October 2020-March 2021, we worked within North Yorkshire. Bloom Sessions was fortunate to be sponsored by the wonderful people at NYMAZ and showcased six illustrators, six musicians and one band. We’re so fortunate they put their trust in us and we can’t wait to keep spotlighting talented individuals in God’s own county.
In June 2021, we announced that Leeds Inspired have allowed Bloom Sessions to continue, having funded a summer ’21 project which will include two live gigs! (Yes!!! Live music!!!!!!)
At the moment we are planning our butts off behind the scenes… so keep your eyes peeled for some v exciting announcements.
A huge thanks to everyone who has followed us on this journey, we believe it’s just the beginning. There is talent in Yorkshire and we want to provide a safe, inclusive, influential platform to encourage women and people of marginalised genders to bloom.
