So what do you do if you find yourself in a foreign country with 23 people from 5 different countries, with English not being their first language? In the middle […]
Class prejudices the real reason for London’s segregated schools Last week’s reports that the ethnic composition of London’s state secondary’s have swelled to 60% in some boroughs, contained the usual xenophobic undertones of floodgates being opened spiel our tabloid press routinely peddles. Ethnics make up around 40% of the capital and yet in inner London […]
Thank you to everyone that came to support us and our talented young musicians at 'The Collective' Concert.
"With all the negative attention that young people are currently receiving, it is a pleasure to see young people that we can be proud of." - Quote from an audience member.
After our concert, Deimante sent us this surprise video! 😀
“I found the whole project, ideas, people, so inspiring & motivational. I could see the heart and souls of everyone through their performances which was amazing, therefore I created a short video to showcase the event.”
