Future's Venture Foundation

Naomi Gabriel and Humaira Ahmed

Tun Up works with young people from some of the most marginalised communities in London, facing lack of opportunities and prospects, despite their close proximity to the Capital. In 2017 Tun Up will teach young people aged 16-24yrs from the London Boroughs of Croydon & Greenwich how to plan, programme and deliver live music events. Participants will learn about and be responsible for every role involved in the event management process from Programming, Administration, Marketing & Promotion to Box Office/Front Of House, Stage Management, Artist Liaison, and Hosting. Young people will also be responsible for all creative roles on the night such as performing, DJing and filming/photographing the event. The aim, to give the young people the confidence to look at starting their own creative projects, and making their own paths to realise their potential. The course is led by Humi, a professional under 18’s Event Producer with a background in spoken word/rap, and Naomi – a professional videographer and DJ with a background in digital media design.
