Go Live


The Go Live project will engage with up to 60 young people aged 11 – 16 in singing/ songwriting and music production workshops, with the aim of creating 4 original songs that are mixed and mastered by a professional from the music industry.

2 music videos will be created, using industry standard equipment and the tracks will become available on all major streaming platforms, e.g. Spotify, Apple Music, etc. and the music video will be uploaded to YouTube.

In addition, young people will have the opportunity to perform their tracks to a live audience at the annual Walthamstow Garden Party and the St. James Street Cultural Day. The project focuses on individual, vocational and personal development through songwriting, music and video production.
