Skiddle team up with the Young Urban Arts Foundation to showcase London’s Music Scenes

The collaboration aims to help young people from at-risk marginalised backgrounds through music

Skiddle, the event discovery platform, has partnered with London based youth charity, Young Urban Art Foundation (YUAF), to create a new programme that will give young creatives a platform to showcase short films about their London Music Scenes.

The young creatives will be challenged to produce their own film, which will form part of the series and give an insight into the real music scene and communities of the city. The new video series will be built using many different mediums, including utilising video footage, illustrations, animations, audio recording, and photography, and will be released this summer across Skiddle’s platforms.

‘Sounds Of My London…’ will show different boroughs and how the vision of the city can differ depending on the community someone is part of. The programme will give participants the knowledge to create an original content series, and will feature guest facilitators including actor Femi Oyeniran.

As part of Skiddle’s recent growth in London, the brand is keen to shine a light on wider communities within the London boroughs, and the different cultures within them, providing more opportunities for events and artists to flourish via its platform.

YUAF, who are currently supported by a number of partners including Sony Music, was born out of a passion for music and the arts and how it can empower the lives of young people by strengthening well-being and building opportunities through creativity and culture. 

The programme will be run as part of the ‘YUAF Futures’ pillar, which was created for young people aged 16-19 from communities challenged by inequality (such as BAME, LGBTQIA, disabled teenagers, and those living in poverty), with an aim to provide them with work experience.
