SHOUT! Free rapping/urban creative sessions

For
Sussex Clubs for Young People

affiliated groups throughout East and
West Sussex and Brighto
n & Hove

Sussex Clubs for Young People have

arranged for

'rapping' workshops and 'Urban

Activities'

for
young people in various SCYP affiliated youth centres in the last few years. We have

recently
received

funds from the Children's Fund and from the Susse
x Community Foundation

that

enable
us to offer more of these

for young people and, in particular, for the younger age group (c.8
-
13
year olds) throughout Sussex.


One proposed project,

SHOUT! offers
free taster workshops
to groups. The idea of
SHOUT!

is t
hat the participants will learn some 'rapping' skills, will have a go at writing /
improvising

raps and then have them recorded. We are particularly

keen to support groups of
vulnerable children.

Please let us know if you work with groups of children who l
ive in deprived
areas of

Sussex, or are hard to reach.

The sessions

will also aim

to encourage children who do not
necessarily achieve in conventional formal schooling but who may respond well to these activities.


Interested? Please contact us. Numbers a
re limited so don't delay. Remember, we would like to
cater for

your group's needs

so if your members

come up with

more ideas, let us know. Contact:
