Have you heard about #Scratchpad?

Last night was the official launch of an exciting new project at Colonnade House which will see six weeks of free music workshops for young musicians and budding producers from 14 to 25-years-old.

Attendees included Adam Joolia, of AudioActive, the organisation running the #Scratchpad sessions, and Mike Pailthorpe, of Northbrook MET, whose students have a strong link to the scheme.

It also gave staff at Colonnade House a chance to receive a cheque from Worthing Community Chest which covered the cost of a state-of-the-art projector being used in the project.

#Scratchpad has seen Colonnade’s usual gallery space transformed into a recording studio with the capacity to create unique music and visuals. Although the windows have been blacked out for the participants privacy, visuals will be projected onto screens visible from the street. A speaker will also broadcast the music being made inside for those who come close enough.

Sessions are free and run on Wednesdays and Thursdays for six weeks from 17th January – 4pm to 6pm for 14-18-year-olds and 6.30pm to 8.30pm for 19-25-year-olds. To find out more and to book a place visit: https://colonnadehouse.co.uk/event/scratchpad/
