Breaking barriers to the creative industries…
NYMAZ is working with North Yorkshire Youth on a brand new project in Selby called ‘The Big Music Project’ - and we’re looking for young people aged 14-19 to become project Champions!
The Big Music Project, a partnership between UK Youth and Global Radio, is about helping young people discover the music industry, and the huge variety of potential career paths in music. Champions will work together to create their very own music project, will attend an exciting training day with other Champions from across the north of England, and will develop their ability to pass on music industry skills to other young people. They’ll also become a part of the national network of TBMP Champions, finding out about career opportunities, work placements, masterclasses and online resources which might interest them.
One Champion will also have the opportunity to take on a leadership role in the group, become a member of The Big Music Project Youth Panel, and attend a residential with other Lead Champions around the country!
We’re looking for motivated young people who are interested in a career in the music industry, though no particular level of musical experience is required to take part. It doesn’t matter what style or genre of music you’re interested in, whether you like to perform in front of audiences, or prefer to be behind the scenes! If you’d like the experience of working with others to create your own music project, and want to share your skills with others, we’d love to hear from you!
- Be 14-19 years old in September 2016
- Be able to attend meetings and workshops in Selby between August 2016 and March 2017 (dates tbc).
The next session will take place in October 2016, so get in touch as soon as you can to be a part of it!
