Music Meets Art is 4-22 Foundation’s first creative arts project. The project will engage young people aged 12 to 25 in the process of making their own creative work.
Music Meets Art will deliver taster sessions in creativity, learning and storytelling through music and art. The young people will be taught how to turn their personal stories into art and music.
The young people will be encouraged to explore their own inner creative resources whilst being shown how the creative process can help them increase their positive well-being, raise confidence and aspirations, and inspire them in their day-to-day activities.
The project will provide pathways to careers in music and fashion. Each student will have their own portfolio of work to take away as a record of their creative ability. Creative professionals, families, and friends will be invited to public performances and exhibitions where students will showcase the work that they have created.
The RecordShop is a multi-award winning music recording studio founded by rapper, producer and DJ Mary Otumahana. The organization offers access to free studio time, music industry mentoring and performance opportunities.
