Our music development programme that has truly prevailed during the COVID 19 Pandemic. With over 15 aspiring young artists on board, this project took a drastic turn into the digital world during lockdown via programmes/websites such as Zoom, Charanga VIP Studios & more. Although it took much away from the practical elements of the original schedule of programming new findings, tools and resources were discovered and utilised to later strengthen the level of competency when returning to COVID Safe content creating activities. The Programme has seen amazing transformations in participant’s appreciation for music and really supported their personal development and confidence. Participants have each created 3-6-track Extended play Projects (E.P’s) of original content, developed an electronic Press Kits & Photography portfolio (EPK). 80% of participants took part in an online performance showcase and interview via the HG31 Instagram live on social media. Led by Artist / Producer Alex ‘Pressure0121’ Williams, DJ / Producer Jamaine ‘Origin8’ Brown Producer/Sound engineer Mark ‘Emvee’ James.
“I was very shy in school before I started writing and my music, now I feel more confident in myself now and people really like my music too”

Made In the Midlands sees a network and community of like minded organisations from across the midlands come together to change the region through the power of co-creation.
This progressive change making community provides a space to share best practice and listen and learn from each other to develop and strengthen collaborative approaches to co-creation for future work.
The network hosted a collection of special guest speakers, motivators and activists, each of whom focused on a particular theme and methodologies of co-creation in different sectors. These included:
Health and social change
Children and young people
Arts and culture
Built environment and Architecture
The sessions were fun, insightful, and inspiring and enabled the network to better understand the power of co-creation across multiple sectors and establish a more diverse and rich conversation to identify the needs and similarities of organisations.
