Thundercats are go!
The Arts Department at the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust was awarded a grant from Youth Music to carry out a huge music project with children and young people in Heartlands Hospital and the Hodge Hill community. The project will run from October 2011 - March 2013 and will include hundreds of young people from the area. We're excited to start! Next week workshops will begin at the James Brindley School and on the children's ward at Heartlands, and at youth groups in Hodge Hill. We have an amazing, energetic professional African drumming teacher who will carry out the first series of workshops. Coming up later in the project are DJing, songwriting and rapping workshops, performances, events at Heartlands Hospital and the chance for our young people to achieve an Arts Award. Hooray!
