About the project:

Our project aims for the young people we’re targeting to: • Build trust with/amongst them through activities current/relevant to their lives in their own communities; • Build understanding between those from different communities / cultures through a shared interest in Hip Hop; • Develop their skills, confidence, wellbeing and aspirations. Additionally, we aim to utilise this project to build evidence of positive impact and expand interest (including from investors/funders), so it’s the catalyst to sustaining a year-round offer. We’re proposing this project as young people we’ve consulted have voiced a need for affordable, accessible activities more relevant to their lives and interests in the City centre; and to provide positive group activities as an alternative for young teenagers to hanging around the streets (including groups involved in anti-social behaviour in summer 2018).
