Break4Change project to start in West Sussex
We're pleased to announce a new partnership with West Sussex County Council, to deliver the Break4Change project
Break4Change is an innovative partnership with local services, working with families suffering from 'child to parent abuse'.
The project works with groups of young people and their parents, to help them tackle their problems.
Trained AudioActive artists use Drama Techniques, Film Making, Rap and Music as mediums to help to promote empathy between families.
Researchers on the project tell us that this is possibly the first time globally that this issue has been tackled in this way and hence the work is really in the spotlight. The project has really seen some of our artists develop their practice a lot too.

Back this summer - AudioActive Presents
We're happy to announce that this summer AudioActive Presents will return to Brighton.
Last year's event in Jubilee Square showcased some of the hottest young local music talent. Singers, bands, and rappers took to the stage for a day of live music.
Singer Songwriter Tia Blackhorse was so impressive in her performance, a passer by offered to fund her artistic development on the spot!
Watch this space for news of 2012's event.
If you're a young singer, rapper, producer or musician then get in touch with us and let us know if you want to perform.
