What is it? – Young people can attend Streetside to learn new skills in DJing, music production, lyricism, live performance and visual arts with trained professionals in a safe and friendly environment.

Our workshops are designed to help young people develop their confidence, raise self-esteem and learn how to work creatively as an individual and together in a team. We aim to help build and develop important life skills which are transferable into a variety of different environments.

In addition, we also work with other organisations to monitor and evaluate the participant’s progress to enable them to achieve the best results from their learning experience.
