We are one of the key providers of community music and arts in York, but we are also a social enterprise, and are proud of our in-house record label, Musication, and the products we create in our electronics workshop.
From March 20th 2020, we have been delivering our activities on-line, as well as providing a phone-support service. We have established a distance-learning college and are working on a recovery portal for those in recovery (due early May 2020). Our news-blog gives details of our responses to the changes in society as a result of Covid-19. We have been involved in making parts of masks for health professionals in our workshop, have established nightly broadcasting on our Facebook page to keep up a sense of community connectivity, and have worked hard to make sure our regular participants have plenty to do.
We are now in our sixth year of delivering clubs, classes and training programmes to the local community, and to those experiencing disadvantage from the wider York area.
Located at The Centre@Burnholme which houses Tang Hall Explore library and cafe, as well as other community providers - we operate from our suite of seven rooms consisting: of two music/arts classrooms, a band rehearsal room, electronics workshop, recording studio, beats room and office.
This organisation is a delivery partner for ESF Community Grants. ESF Community Grants are funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Education and Skills Funding Agency and the aim of the fund is to help unemployed people progress towards employment through access to learning and training opportunities
We run a variety of community
clubs, classes and programmes each week, all of which are open to the public.
