Our touring project Raw Roads: IMAGINE has come to the end of the road – and what a brilliant journey it was! Our crew travelled to Nottingham, Folkestone and London delivering inspiring music, devising and performance skills workshops to talented young people in each city. Every week of workshops ended in a public showcase of the materials created at the workshops.
On July 25th, some of the young people who took part in our workshops came to London for their end of project showcase at the POW in Brixton. The group spent half the day at Raw Material HQ, where they rehearsed for the gig and also wrote and recorded fresh lyrics to a collective beat in our studio. Check out the final song out below!
Our young artists then spent the rest of the day at POW – our showcase host for the second time – preparing for the show. Family, friends and locals attended to support and enjoy the event. It was a great success and new pieces of inspiring music, rap, songs and spoken word were featured to the excited audience’s delight.
Here is some of the brilliant feedback from the participants…
