We are absolutely delighted to have received a further three years funding from Youth Music.
Following on from the success of our previous Youth Music funded project “Be Heard”, the new project “Musical Future” will see young people engaging in a wide variety of music activities. This will include the forming of our Music Ambassadors. This group of young people will be in charge of promoting and managing music events in our area, so keep an eye out for future concerts in the near future. (online due to COVID)
As well as the Music Ambassadors, we shall also be running a series of song writing workshops. This is where young people will have the chance to use the facilities in our new refurbished studio. Please have a listen to the latest 3 singles we released onto all streaming platforms via our new 2020 Records Label. Click on the artists name to take you to their single on Spotify:
We’re very excited about the new studio space and what it can offer, while still being able to adhere to social distancing guidelines. It will mainly be used to record music that the young people we work with write, but it will also be available to the public. As well as recording audio, it also includes facilities to film and live stream webinars or performances.
As soon as it is safe to do so, we shall also be continuing our in-school Rock Band project. This sees students forming bands, playing new instruments and learning well known songs that culminates in a performance to friends and family.
Also, as part of an explore heritage project, 120 primary students will be given the task of creating some digital music to support an animation. This will also earn them a Discover Arts Award.
"Without our funders, 20Twenty Productions would not exist. In a world where all children and young people were treated with respect, equality, and afforded creative and artistic opportunities to express themselves, we would not need to."
