OUR WORK

BBC RADIO 1XTRA TAKE IT ON

1Xtra-LogoWorking with BBC Radio 1 & BBC Radio 1Xtra on their grassroots participation events as part of the BBC Radio 1Xtra Live Tour, we were tasked we advising in regards to programme, target audience and the targeted recruitment of NEET and At Risk young people, as well as those who were interested in careers in media and music.

Further we assisted with booking relevant speakers for various panels, as well as sat on a number of panels too.

 

THE LIVERPOOL ONE PROJECT

We worked with Liverpool’s top Urban music artists to create an LP and corresponding music videos that reflected the views, experiences and wants of the City’s youth during 2009. The music from the project was supported regularly on national radio and was nominated at the Urban Music Awards. Further this project was the focus of a chapter of an international academic journal focused on music, definition, cultures and place.

BEAT CLUB

BEATCLUBWe were engaged by Everton and Merseyside Black History Month Group to lead on the artistic direction, recruitment and marketing for BEAT FM and later BEAT Club projects.

The aim of the projects were to engage young people from across Merseyside with a love of Urban Music to provide a platform for collaboration, cohesion and promotion. We developed the concept, recruited the young people and lead on programming and content.

In it’s first year, BEAT has been involved with major events such as CLUB MTV, LIMF and BRIT School Tour.

CROSSING THE LINE

A project that started in 2007 looking at divisions and common ground between groups of young people and what work is being done to ease the issue of division and the shared problems both groups face. The acclaimed documentary received coverage on national TV and radio stations. Since then we have ran this project three more times – each looking at different conflicts. Our latest version focused on the experiences of young people in U.K, Netherlands, Sicily, Romania and Bulgaria.

ATTITUDE

Attitude1Working as consultants for Milton Keynes Youth Service, we created a programme of engagement for Hard To Reach young people, culminating in an event the group organised, promoted and organised that featured performances by local young people alongside some of the top UK artists, including Ghetts, Mz Bratt, KOF & Janiece Myers.

We aided the young people in all event curation and management aspects, including booking, tech and production.

The project and event was attended by over 2,000 young people.
