Our Young Creatives programme is a diverse, exploratory, innovative and experimental programme of activity with and for young people.
Our work through both the Criw Celf programme, Sunset Walks, Calling Project and Kick Starter research project have stimulated engaged creative thinking and learning as a catalyst for empowering young people to recognise their strengths.
Whatever the artform, at the very heart of all our programmes is the desire to encourage arts-led inquiry and offer the means to discover and enhance a language of self expression in participants.
We work with partners to embed activity with existing groups in familiar and safe spaces that help break down perceived barriers to creative participation and engagement.
Arts Active Music Lab
The Arts Active Experimental Music Lab is an opportunity for people aged 14 – 19 to explore the possibilities of music technology as a means of creating crossovers between musical genres. Using recording and sound manipulation techniques, participants can use traditional musical instruments and other sound sources, such as found sound and voice, to create experimental music as well as sound art, noise art and performance art. Includes entry level education in audio recording, audio collection, sound manipulation, use of plug ins and the operation of a basic recording set up. Participants are encouraged to bring instruments and use them to make musical or sound recordings. Virtual instruments, sample packs, synthesisers and loops may also be used. There will be no barriers to what you can create!
