CheerSing, Louise Gibbs’ community participation project, has been chosen for the Yorkshire Festival 2014. Supported by the Arts Council, Welcome to Yorkshire and Yorkshire Water, the 100-day arts and culture festival leads the run up to the Tour de France, 4-6 July 2014.
CheerSing aims to engage crowds cheering the Tour de France in Yorkshire to create big, beautiful, locally-distinctive soundscapes along the route. From March to June Louise will be running workshops for communities across Yorkshire to:
- devise ‘signature’ chants/clapping-raps/cheer-songs and actions which identify their particular part of Yorkshire
- sing and shout effectively and safely in the open air
