This was our second project in collaboration with Adam Aslam from the Leeds Muslim Youth Forum. The day was a partnership between 'The Zone', 'Breaking Down Barriers' and the 'Junior Sports Hub In Harehills'. The day consisted of sports activities, board games and general conversations between all young people. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all and we look forward to our next collaborative event.

This was such a great project! When a talented group of young Israelis came to Leeds for Yom Hazikaron, they immediately made a positive impression on Zone members. We arranged for the two groups to get together and collaborate on a music project, resulting in the album ‘Somewhere Wonderful’. The young people performed all of the music and vocals on the album, and it was recorded at The Zone.
During Covid all youth movement trips to Israel were cancelled. The Zone teamed up with an Israeli tour guide to make a series of virtual tours for young people to enjoy. You can view these here.
