I was part co-facilitator, part participant in the project and was involved in everything from recruitment to the final film and radio projects. I learnt a lot about Bristol’s role in UK and global music trends. We were given a massive amount of information about the city’s roots, and how they’ve played a part in the vibrant music and culture here. I particularly enjoyed a guided tour around St. Pauls from Prof. Edson Burton; it added a totally new dimension to the area for me. Meeting Edson Burton and Rob Mitchell – creative director of First Born Creatives – was great. Rob was really energetic and enthusiastic, about our ideas and futures. As part of the project I was able to present my film at the Watershed. As well as co-hosting a radio show on Ujima! Through which I have been offered more opportunities to DJ professionally in Bristol. Now I feel confident enough to pursue a career in either industry – anything is possible!
