This week, the More Volume team were invited to attend and present to young attendees at the 6th Annual Digital South Youth Event organised by Forward South Belfast in Elmwood Hall. The event is designed to give school children in Years 11-14 the opportunity to meet with organisations that use technology and digital skills in their working contexts. The range of organisations attending was vast, from film makers to banks to lighting specialists.
We brought along two young up and coming artists and industry professionals who use technology every day to create, record and mix music both in professional studios and at home in accessible set ups. We engaged with over 190 pupils from schools all across Belfast and beyond, using the opportunity to promote our youth engagement programmes as well as the career avenues within the music industry that could be open to the young people.
We were delighted to attend and very excited to have been approached by one of the attending schools to look at the possibility of delivering More Volume within their school environment! Watch this space!
