We’re delighted to say that all our young people from #Amplify2022 have achieved a pass for their work on the band project (which included playing at the festival) and will now receive a Bronze Art Award!
Gathering for the first time back in Easter, the young people ended up forming three bands. They were teamed up with our brilliant mentors Rob Crisp (Knuckle), Georgia Jakubiak (The State Of Georgia) and Jamie Roberts (Gilmore & Roberts) and spent a couple of months writing and rehearsing music.
They played their first shows at Long Division Festival, to a packed out Hop. There’s some footage from the show and an interview with one of the bands in our official film below.
Catch some of the bands from this programme and other #YoungTeam projects, at our next WMC gig Fri 26th Aug – details to follow!
