We launched a new music academy in July 2019 at East Moors Youth Centre in Splott, Cardiff with the support from the Arts Council of Wales’ National Lottery scheme, Cardiff Youth Service, Buzz University of South Wales and Pride Cymru.
The Academy offered free of charge bespoke creative development opportunities for up to 47 invited music talents and nurtured a diverse range from bands, singers, songwriters and rappers to music producers and engineers. Academy members had the opportunity to work with our team to build portfolios of work including developing and recording original tracks and performing at The Lookout Cafe, Cardiff Bay on Saturday 24th August and Pride’s Big Weekend on Sunday 25th August, where we presented a staggering 19 different acts in one day.
Thanks to all who supported us including volunteers, partners and guest acts and to the sheer talent and exuberance of the young people involved.
We are currently developing the Academy programme and plan to continue offering opportunities from October 2019 onwards. Details and a video documentary coming soon…..
