Youngsters get arty for More Music's festival
Young people from community music charity More Music have helped to curate their own week long arts festival, '˜This Ain't A Scene.'
The festival, which runs until July 6 9 July at the Hothouse in Morecambe, has been organised to celebrate 10 years of the arts award, ‘This Ain’t A Scene.’
The award is a gold and silver arts award project and will feature music, film, art, spoken work and first time collaborations made by young people from across Morecambe and the North West, all of whom have been working towards their arts award.
The week will include exhibitions, open mic nights, gigs, debates, films, showcases and masterclasses closing with an all day gig and album launch on Saturday July 9, showcasing a year’s worth of work from More Music’s Youth Programme.
Ex-Elbow drummer Richard Jupp will be delivering a drumming masterclass on Thursday (July 7), sharing his skills and experience gained from 25 years with the Mercury Music Prize winning band. This workshop is now fully booked.
There will also be a debate night on Wednesday July 6 to discuss the question ‘Can Art Change The World?’, with a panel featuring journalist John Robb, More Music’s artistic director Pete Moser, Tim Rogers from Lancashire Music Hub and more.
All events take place at More Music’s Hothouse in Morecambe. More Music is an accredited Arts Award centre.
