Young people across the Bradford District are being given the opportunity to learn from music and media industry experts at a special Music Expo.
Music Expo offers young people aged between 13 and 19 the opportunity to meet professionals within the creative industries. They will also be able to explore the different qualifications and career pathways that are open to them if they want to pursue a career within music and media.
The evening will include industry representatives showcasing their work. There will be stalls and activities for young people, including an opportunity for singers, rappers, and MCs to contribute to a collaborative CD that will be made on the day.
Music Expo will take place on 29 November 2012 from 6pm-9pm at Culture Fusion, 12 Thornton Road, Bradford. Entry is free.
The event has been organised by Bradford Youth Service with the support of Bradford University and a number media companies.
Mick Chandsoor, Arts & Environment Worker, Bradford Youth Service, said: “We held a similar event three years ago and more than 100 young people took part. Music Expo is a fun way for young people to find out more and gain practical advice from industry experts who know the business.”
Cllr Ralph Berry, Portfolio Holder for Children’s Services, said: “This will be a fantastic opportunity for young people who are thinking about a career in music and the creative industries to find out what their first step could be, and what qualifications are open to them.”
