Young people in Ashington were proud to achieve their Discover Arts Award last week during a Real Voice Youth music activity day.

Working with songwriter Holly Rees the young people spent the afternoon creating their own unique sound through songwriting, investigating what it means to be an artist and sharing with peers and youth workers what they thought of the day.

Young people enjoyed creating their own song about anxiety and worked to explore what that meant to them and other young people through their lyrics, incorporating rap and guitar to showcase their thoughts.

It was a fantastic day for all involved and we can’t wait to see what music they create next!
