Making Tracks is a programme developed by the Irene Taylor Trust, run in partnership with TiPP in the North West. Making Tracks is an opportunity for young people in challenging circumstances to develop life skills through making music with professional musicians.
The first Making Tracks: North West project took place in Oldham, Manchester in June 2018.
As part of the project the young people earn an officially recognised Arts Award accreditation and afterwards are supported by our Personal Development Manager to find suitable progression routes.
The Irene Taylor Trust and TiPP are two of the most well established and well respected arts organisations in the sector. We both work from a belief in the power of the arts to transform lives, break down barriers and help people who have found themselves on the fringes of society to become celebrated and valued members of the community.
Making Tracks: North West is supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Arts Council England and the Hedley Trust.
