In The Mix: Contemporary Urban Workshops – 2nd, 3rd and 4th June 2010

In The Mix is a series of workshops that will take place during the Liverpool Sound City festival.

If you are aged 14-19 and want to develop your skills in DJing, MCing, beat boxing, street dancing and performance but don’t know where to start?  Well here is your chance.

In The Mix is a series of activities focused on Contemporary Urban and Hip Hop culture taking place as part of the Liverpool Sound City festival.  Over three days you will work with professional artists working in the Creative Industries to discover what it takes and learn some new skills.

This is an exciting and innovative project that requires dedication, motivation and a real interest in performing.  Whatever your ability this project is open to everyone.

In The Mix will be delivered at Alima Centre, 35 Sefton Street.  Participants will develop a performance or recording that will be performed or played at The Picket on the 19th or 26th June (WTS).  You will have the chance to work with some current UK artists and you will perform in your chosen discipline.

You can choose to take part in either the Dance or Music workshops (you cannot take part in both because they run simultaneously) .  You will work in groups of 15 to develop your performance or recording and you will collaborate with the other groups.

If you are 14-19, motivated, want to perform  and want to try your hand at developing skills in any of the above areas then please email us at

info@creativeideasinaction.com or phone 0151 291 9100

We need your name, age, contact information and school name.  We will then send you an application form to the email address or postal address you leave.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Broadcasting Futures is due to begin soon!

This will be great news to those of you have already applied to take part.  The project will be going ahead as normal (after the hiccup that we had at the start) and we are still accepting applications for anyone still thinking about applying.  For those of you who don’t know anything about the project here is a little information.

CIIA and the Liverpool Sound City festival are teaming up with a selection of practitioners working in the fields of Broadcasting, Film and Radio to deliver a project to young people aged 14-19.  So ff this is you or you know someone who this might apply to then please read on…

Broadcasting Futures is a free project spaced over 8-10 weeks where young people will learn a variety of skills in Broadcasting, Film and Radio.  The aim of the young people taking part is to study a variety of careers across the Creative Industries.

By working during the Liverpool Sound City festival you will be working alongside Aimhigher Student Mentors and the Project Deliverers to interview and film a selection of individuals who currently work in the Creative Industries.

You will come into contact with people working in a variety of roles including A&R, Music Production, Artist Management, Sound and Lighting Technicians, Journalism, Photography, Tour Management, Record Label Bosses and so on.

You may even see and interview a few Artists and Musicians along the way.

As a final result you will use the film and recordings you have collected to put together a 15 minute documentary about careers in the Creative Industries.  Also using the material we will create a log in area of the CIIA website where young people interested in a Creative Career will be able to get advice about what careers are available and what responsibilities are involved.

If you are 14-19, motivated and want to try your hand at developing some Multi-Media skills then please email us at
