Like the proverbial London bus, we have not one but two projects with young people engaging with youth offending teams coming up. Please join us to celebrate the achievements of the young people at these free live music events in London on 10th August and 1st September.
We’re excited to be taking our Making Tracks programme back to East London for our 2nd project with Newham YOT, and for the first time to West London for a project with Cobbs Hall, Hammersmith & Fulham YOS. The projects will include live performances and we’d love for you to join us to enjoy the original music written and played by the young people.
Over just 4 days, led by The Irene Taylor Trust’s project team, the young people taking part will learn how to play instruments, form a band and write their own original songs. The tracks will be recorded for a CD album to share with their family and friends. After taking part in the intensive project, the young people will be given the chance to hone their new-found skills in a series of special follow-on sessions. They will also have the opportunity to earn an Arts Awards accreditation.
