Hustings Event – Infinity Trampoline Park

Not the Usual Hustings

Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of Wales are undertaking a project called ‘Not’ The Usual Suspects. The project aims to
involve young people in gaining an understanding of politics and speaking with politicians about issues which
affect their daily lives.

 

 

Event
As part of this project, there will be a ‘Not the Usual Hustings’ event where young people aged 16 to 25 can ask
candidates from each of the main political parties why young people should vote for them in the forthcoming
Welsh Assembly Elections. The event is hosted by BBC Newsbeats Steffan Powell and will provide young
people with an opportunity to visit a ‘market place’ to find out more about politics. On the evening the
‘Politically Correct App’ will be launched which has been designed by young people to explain how politics
affects young people. The event will finish with an opportunity for young people and possibly the AM candidates
to test out the trampolines!

Venue
Infinity Trampoline Park, Saint Catherines Park, Pengam Rd, Cardiff CF24 2RZ.
Dates Thursday 7 April 2016, 6pm until 9pm
Activities
The event will include an opportunity for young people to use the trampolines after the ‘hustings’ event.
Ages 16-25 (Primarily we want to offer this to those who vote but are open to younger people attending if relevant)
Cost

This activity is funded by Erasmus+

The Big Music Project!

Volunteering and performing opportunity for young people!
Help make their CV’s explode with amazing experience!

Youth Cymru would like to invite you to The Big Music Project, offering young people an amazing volunteering and performing opportunity.

The Big Music Project is funded by the Big Lottery and is in its second year. In 2014/15 The Big Music Project was a huge success across the UK with thousands of young people taking part and the biggest names in the music industry, with the likes on Plan B, Ellie Goulding, Union J and Chase & Status.

The aim of the project is to help young people “get their foot in the door” of the music industry. The most important part of this project is that you don’t need to be able to sing/ play an instrument or even dance; all you need is passion and determination to reach your goal. The Big Music Project gives young people advice on everything, from hair and make up to stage lighting to becoming a band manger. Maybe we will find a Welsh Louis Walsh?

We would like to invite young people from all over Wales to attend the event FREE, on Saturday 27th February 2016 at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay. They will have the chance to talk to people already in the music industry, take part in workshops around planning festivals, learning to DJ and recording your own sound. There will be performances from young people across Wales on the community stage and young people will have the opportunity to ask questions to specialist from Global, BPI and other big industry names during the Q&A sessions.

In addition, we have many volunteering and performing opportunities throughout the day. We are looking for volunteers to film, blog, report and photograph the day plus youth work experience available. They will receive 2 hours training from specialists such as Cardiff Radio before the event. Also, if any young people and interested in performing on the day then we can also accommodate this. Please contact Youth Cymru on 01443 827840 or email Lizzy@youthcymru.org.uk for more information and application forms or Click here to apply

This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to enhance their CV’s and to give them a glimpse of how they could achieve their dreams in the music industry.

Last year over 1000 young people came to the event and it was a massive success. Please forward this email onto teachers and young people at your school/college for this fantastic career advice opportunity.

We look forward to hearing from you,
