Location: Lighthouse Project Space, New England House, Elder Place, York Hill Corner, BN1 4GH ( map )

Tickets: FREE. Booking Required

Age: For 14-25 year olds

In this workshop Neef, author of Where We Come From: Rap Home and Hope in Modern Britain, will be creating an open and accessible space for young people to explore "where they come from" in the context of Brighton and nearby counties.

Through the exploration of the three tenets detailed in his book participants will explore how we find origins of music cultures, particularly underground genres and localised music-led communities, digging deep into the legacy of rap, hope, and home in and beyond our city.

In partnership with AudioActive, a local not-for-profit that creates social change through music, Neef will facilitate the workshop with a group of young people that would benefit from the workshop, focusing on underrepresented communities in and around Brighton.

This workshop is designed and intended for 14-25 year olds. If you are older and particularly keen to be involved we suggest attending the open session in the evening.
