Bradford Community Broadcasting receives funding from Youth Music Foundation

Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB) is delighted that they have been awarded funding from the Youth Music Foundation to support the development of youth music in Bradford.

BCB will be supporting young people to develop more opportunities for young musicians to perform live in Bradford, in venues appropriate for young people from diverse communities and backgrounds.

Though a series of regular workshops, young people will learn all the skills needed to put on live events themselves, hearing from industry professionals, venues and promoters. Young musicians will also be mentored to develop skills around how they can promote themselves to venues.

Another key strand to the project is for young people to become radio broadcasters on BCB Radio, producing and presenting music focused programmes, reflecting the wealth of young talent in Bradford.

We’re looking for young people in Bradford aged 12 – 25 , with a passion for music, to come together and develop their skills in whichever way they choose. We know how important music is for so many young people and we want to nurture that passion and support young people to understand the opportunities that are there for them in the music industry

BCB’s Director Mary Dowson says: ‘These are really exciting times for Bradford. We’re delighted to be working with some fantastic partner organisations to deliver the project including Kala Sangam, Brickbox, Fuse, The Underground, and Belle Vue Girls School. I’m sure that working together we can make some lasting change for young people in Bradford’.

The first taster sessions for the project will be held at BCB 11 Rawson Road BD1 3SH on Friday 23 and Friday 30 August 2- 4pm.

Anyone is very welcome to come.

The project runs for 2.5 years until December 2021.
