Back in the August… which seems like FOREVER ago… the final event of the Culture Matters programme was run. The event – Music Matters – saw a group of young people work with the wehearttech C.I.C. team and partners to programme and run a selection of music-making activities for other children and young people in Liverpool Central Library.
As part of Music Matters, different music-makers – digital and traditional – popped-up their stalls in the Discovery space on a Saturday afternoon and filled the library with sounds, fun and smiles. Wigan STEAM where there with some tablets for a digital music-making, Mako Digital Arts had a GarageBand drop-in, Laura Pullig was running a plant synths activity and Ronnie Brandon was there with his ukuleles!
Working on the event a group of young people were supported by Uma Ramanathan to manage the activities and do the all important health and safety, as well as being mentored by Rachel Brewster from Little Vintage Photography in how to film and photograph the day. Check out the video below to get a sense of the day and see what the young people produced!
