LoVe Sounds have participated in local research and have been fortunate to work with Sarah Holland TCAFs Senior Youth Worker and their youth cafs to foster interest in developing this project. LoVe Sounds will use the medium of music as a way of bringing together young people who may not feel comfortable participating in other youth activities. LoVe Sounds will use their previous experience of delivering community music workshops to ensure they create an accessible youth-friendly space to develop this project. LoVe Sounds will tap into young people interest in music and be able to tailor the vinyl workshops to use music that they are into as a hook for engaging in positive activities.LoVe Sounds plan to deliver three vinyl DJ workshops in February half term across Trowbridge at Studley Green Community Centre Longfield Community Centre and potentially at the Stallards Skate Park. This will be followed by a 12-week DJ workshop at the venue which is deemed to be most appropriate for the interested young people.LoVe Sounds will ensure that the activities are accessible to everyone and offer disabled access. Ensuring to respond to any specific identified needs of young people. Music offers an ideal medium for young people who may struggle at school academically therefore it is hoped that there will be uptake from young people who may have additional learning needs.

There will be no charge for these activities therefore encouraging those from low-income families to apply particularly to participate in positive activities during the school holidays.
