Young Producers is a new project for young people who have taken part in Making Tracks, supported by the Arts Patron Trust. Our second 2 Young Producers are collaborating to put on a gig involving other young people and will be blogging about the process.
The first day on the Young Producers was very enjoyable, I met our manager Lauren and my partner on the project Louisa for the first time. They were both great and we worked really well together.
The morning session was very challenging, there was a lot of information to take in, a few things to sign and we had a discussion about what our vision for the project would be. We decided on a Summer theme, also we wanted to make the event about a celebration of young talent in London.
After settling on a theme, we then brainstormed on what the flyer is going to look like and other ways we could promote the event. Our ideas ranged from posting the flyer on Instagram, creating a Facebook events page, involving other charities that already work with Irene Taylor Trust and releasing a video vine.
In the afternoon, we had a discussion about what type of artists we want to play at the event. we also had to set a plan for the next sessions. In the next session we will be speaking to Alex who is a venue manager, we are hoping he will be able to give us some tips about the challenges of hosting an event and how to make sure that our event is successful.
For the next session, we are looking forward to seeing the draft of our flyer and to record a promotional video to go on the Facebook events page.
Stay tuned for more updates!!!
