New projects for teenagers and young people starting this month at The Albany!

As part of Lewisham Live 2018, The Albany is running two brilliant projects for teenagers and young people in the borough.

Albany Young Creatives returns for the new year for young people aged 16 - 25, and new for 2018, Chill Pill is an urban music and spoken word project exclusively for teenagers. 

Both projects will run throughout February and March, and will culminate in performances to the public at The Albany, Deptford on the 24th March (Young Creatives) and 29th March (Chill Pill).

The Albany Young Creatives meet weekly and are mentored by a team of industry professionals on marketing, creative programming, budgeting and performance. Many of last year's young creatives have gone on to work in the arts as assistant producers, facilitators and youth mentors, and the chance to create new work that will be performed in a prestigious arts venue like The Albany, is a unique opportunity for Lewisham Live Festival.

Chill Pill is a project for young people aged 13-19 with an interest in spoken word, rap and urban music. Working with Adam Kammerling (MC and spoken word artist), and Damien Cooke (music producer and song writer), over a period of weeks young people will hone their skills and then showcase their talents to a public audience on the 29th March.

There is still time for young people to get involved in the Young Creatives and Chill Pill projects. The sessions are free to attend and will start at the end of the month.
