Target Cohort: Young People in challenging circumstances aged 14 to 18 years old

Project's Key Objective: Through taking part in creative activity, creating and recording an original album of music based on a theme or ‘concept’, 96 young people will be supported through Bronze Arts Award. 120 Young People in total will have the opportunity to take Bronze Arts Award.  Four Assistant Music leaders will gain Silver Arts Award - These roles will support delivery, provide peer-mentor opportunities and develop the local music workforce.

Summary: Concept is based around a week-long 'studio residency' with an ethos of artists and Young People as collaborators and co-producers of an original EP with a shared concept, character or theme. Young People write original lyrics, make original music and record their own tracks. Young People continue their artistic development over the following weeks as a bridge to regular participation. The project will be hosted at 3 venues in Northamptonshire and 3 venues in Leicestershire during 2017 and 2018.
