Each year in the event’s run up FOCUS Wales deliver a variety of community based projects. These projects provide people of all ages and abilities with access to engaging and informative workshops and performances.
This year FOCUS Wales are collaborating with ‘Vic Studios’ at Wrexham Victoria Youth Centre, to present the ‘Introduction to Remixing’ project in association with Dee Valley Water.
This project offers 10 young music enthusiasts the opportunity to partake – FREE of charge – in the 2 hour micro course, which offers participants the opportunity to learn the basics of music remixing. The sessions take place at the Wrexham Victoria Youth Centre (13 Hill Street, Wrexham, LL11 1SN), and are presented by Course Director and Studio Co-ordinator Mike Harmina.
Participants who successfully complete the course are rewarded with a FREE FOCUS Wales Festival Wristband, granting free access to the festival. Successful participants are also awarded an OCN ‘Introduction to Remixing’ Level 2 qualification certificate.
Ian Plenderleith, Chief Executive of Dee Valley Water, said: “Dee Valley Water is pleased to be able to contribute towards the growing success of this important arts festival which is based in the heart of our supply area. We are particularly pleased to be helping young people learn more about the world of music. We look forward to welcoming everyone to this beautiful area for what will be a stimulating and entertaining weekend.”
