BT OpenReach Turn Their Hand to Urban Arts!

The employees of BT OpenReach had a fantastic away day as they took part in taster sessions of graffiti, turntablism, MCing and music production.

Fantastic tracks were written taking inspiration from current newspapers, and graffiti was instantly approved of and the artwork produced was of a really high standard, even though many people remarked they had never used a spraycan before.

Everyone, including our tutors, really enjoyed this event and we look forward to taking part in future corporate events.

Riverside Performance Event

Taking a holistic approach to urban art forms, the students at Riverside Business and Enterprise College have been working hard on a fantastic performance event that took place in front of friends and parents earlier this week.

The students who were interested in physical art forms took part in breakdance and street dance, those who felt strongly about spoken word performed songs and raps and the artistic types designed the graffiti backdrop that hung behind the stage. There was even a dedicated media team who filmed and edited both the backstage video and the final showcase film.

The students managed everything, from the graffiti art backdrop to the running order and backstage management. It’s safe to say it all went smoothly thanks to the professionalism, enthusiasm and great organisational skills demonstrated by the students.
