We are also on the gofundme website as the gofundme heroes after visiting us in Hull at our dj and music workshop were they did a photoshoot for their website.
We are unique in our practice having our mobile recording studio on wheels were we are able to travel to organisations youth projects and communities. Our hip hip workshops are very popular with the young people this is exemplified by the results we get.
What form the activity will take? Online workshops through zoom teaching the elements of hip hop.
Who shall engage and benefit? Our core target audience will be between the age of 10 and 25 years old it will benefit people that do usually have access to the arts it will benefit the people that are linked to the young person for example a foster worker or parent will see the positive change that has developed. We feel it is urgent to roll out this work now as young people havent had the schooling or mentorship the deserve in 2020 so if we can change a few young people lives with the support we can offer this is why we feel it is necessary and urgent. With the current situations that we are faced with and the uncertainty of how the future will turn out it is vital to create a project that empowers people in feeling confident to take on new work education and life challenges.
