#Scratchpad music project

The new year brings new opportunities and in January and February we are supporting live music and new music in Worthing through #Scratchpad – a music project for young songwriters, performers and producers in partnership with AudioActive and Northbrook MET.

#Scratchpad will run sessions for young people with mentoring from professional musicians and producers and you will be able to see and hear some work in progress as you stand in front of the virtual stage at Colonnade House that is being created for the project by As Described who brought the Geminate II installation to Colonnade House last year.

AudioActive are leading the sessions for #Scratchpad. They have a track record of supporting young people to create, record and perform and their experienced mentors will be here to work with young and emerging music producers, vocalists, musicians & VJ’s.

Sessions are FREE and run on Wednesdays and Thursdays for six weeks from 17th January: 4.00-6pm for 14-18 year olds and 6.30 – 8.30pm for 19-25 year olds

REGISTER for sessions via this link: audioactive.org.uk/scratchpad/

#Scratchpad is a partnership project between Adur & Worthing Trust, Audio Active, Northbrook Metropolitan College, As Described and Adur & Worthing Councils with generous funding from Arts Council England, Worthing Town Centre Initiative and Worthing Community Chest.
