Support young people with just a few clicks…

This month please use your clicking fingers for good and support our campaign for Aviva Community Funding.  With just a few clicks you can help us provide an inspiring summer programme for young people in Bristol.

We want to encourage and support more young people to be creative, active members of their communities, and help them to develop new skills they can use both in school and out.

Through ‘Jump Into…’ they will design and create sustainable fashion, build their very own robots, and make jewellery using the latest ‘Maker Lab’ technologies, such as laser cutters.

Registration takes just a few clicks: visit our page and click on ‘Register / Log in’.

When you’ve registered you’ll be given 10 votes: every vote counts, so please show us your support! You can vote until May 31st.

Please share this message with your friends, family and networks and help us secure the funding to provide a fun and accessible programme of arts activities for young people in Bristol.

A big thank you from everyone at Knowle West Media Centre.

Instrument Appeal

We are trying to find new instruments and equipment to help young people to make music in Bristol. We are looking for any instruments, old and new, music equipment, amps, stands, headphones, cables and money for us to buy used kit – alongside ideas for finding people who maybe interested.

We work with young people aged 13 – 19 on a weekly basis, supporting them to create original music and offering opportunities for live performance and recording. Our numbers are growing all the time and we’re in need of more equipment to cater to the young peoples’ creative needs. With more instruments, we could run two sessions simultaneously rather than dismantling our music studio every time we run a music session. We’d love to be able to support young people to work together more often too, so they can create collaborative pieces.

December is the busiest sales month for new instruments: come Christmas, lots of instruments will be superseded by newer models. Do you have a used or pre-loved instrument that needs a new home? At KWMC we’ll support a budding musician to make the most of it!
