Music UNLOCKS POTENTIAL
The BRIT Trust and 'the Value of Music'
To celebrate the fantastic support from The BRIT Trust over the last three years Key4Life has created a short film to celebrate the crucial role music plays in the rehabilitation of the young offenders.
Thanks to our music partners The BRIT Trust and Island Records we bring artists inside the prison for our music workshops. Music works as a vehicle for the participants to express themselves in a safe, honest and creative space. The young men benefit greatly from the group setting and performing alongside each other within the prison. Post-release, Key4Life continues the work with music and has produced many tracks including “I and I” produced by Naughty Boy and a forthcoming EP to be launched in May in association with Island Records.
Key4Life’s latest prison programme at HMP Brixton saw Island Records, Young Spray, Sneakbo, Al, the Native, Walter Ego and BPI (who represents the UK’s recorded music industry) engage in our music workshop as part of the Unlock stages on the rehabilitation programme.
“Music therapy is vital part of Key4Life's engagement strategy to build confidence, emotional resilience and unlock young men’s creative potential and we are hugely grateful to The BRIT Trust for their invaluable support over the last three years.” Eva Hamilton MBE, CEO and Founder.
Take a look at our film showcasing how The BRIT Trust and Key4Life have successfully collaborated.
Key4Life thanks The BRIT Trust, BPI and to the Ravensbourne students (headed up by Harry Guttridge) for their amazing support in the making of this short film.
