Youth Arts & Skills

Do you want to get creative, learn new skills and make a difference?

The Youth Arts & Skills project meets on Wednesday evenings and involves young people in designing and planning creative projects which will make a difference to the people and places of Wellingborough. These could be projects which improve your local environment, put on an event, do something to help other people in Wellingborough, whatever – you get to decide and we have some funding to help you do it! At the sessions we’ll also be developing skills and having a go at different art forms – whatever you are interested in – it could be Photography, Music, Theatre, Drawing, anything!

This project is free to attend and will be continuing into 2023 where we’ll continue getting creative and learning artistic skills whilst making a positive impact – and we’re always looking for local young people to join us.

We recently completed a new mural in Eastfield Park and the group starts back up again on Wednesday 9th November from 6pm-8pm at St Marks Church in Queensway to work with Deuon Smith to make some music. New people are welcome!

Current Project

Looking for Wellingborough young people 13-18yrs to make music!

Deuon Smith is an Artist/Producer from the UK and has been producing/composing music from an early age. Experimenting with many different genres of music over the years, Deuon has been heavily influenced by UK Rap/Grime music and Hip-Hop, which you will be able to hear in his music.

No music experience is needed to join this project. We will be writing lyrics and music, using instruments and learning about music tech. The project is also about young people making a difference in Wellingborough so we hope to use the tracks created for good locally.

No previous experience or anything like that is necessary – you can sign up in advance or you just turn up on the 9th – if you’re interested, just drop in.
