funds to continue community work

£31,276 of £50,000 goal

Raised by 698 people in 10 months

Hull Beats Bus is a mobile recording studio committed to building confidence and giving young people a voice through music and art workshops. Being mobile means that we can travel to wherever the greatest need for our work is, and we aim to engage with hard to reach or deprived communities in particular.

The Beats Bus launched our work during the 2017 Hull City of Culture, working with over 200 primary school kids, as well as delivering long-term training with a group of children aged 8 to 11 to put on live performances (including at Freedom Fest, Humber street sesh and Kardomah) and record their own songs.

Parents and teachers have indicated that our workshops have had a significant impact - improving children's well being and mental health, as well as developing confidence and a sense of teamwork!

We want to build on this success and do more.

Having registered the Beats Bus as a social enterprise, we are now raising funds to continue this work year round. This campaign will support the ongoing costs of ensuring we can continue to build the reach and positive impact of the Beats Bus.

Our target £20000 would ensure both the running costs (bus maintenance, fuel, music equipment) as well as tutor wages to continue delivering fully accessible and free workshops.

Our work is community driven and direct - we are committed to making every £1 count, and contributing to positive change for a new generation.

Please spread the word by sharing this page, inviting others to get involved and donating if you can. Thank you for your support!
