In January Youth Music awarded us funding to start a large three-year project, MiXT-UP, giving young people who wouldn't normally get the the chance to access music-making activities.


With funding from Awards For All, Kieran Walsh and Lewis Buttery from Soft Touch Arts go to Glen Parva prison to work with inmates every week with help from staff from The Therapeutic Drug and Alcohol Support Team (TDAS).


As part of funding received from Ambition, young people that attend our STart sessions produced artwork and music for their Work and Progress exhibition at Soft Touch’s New Walk building.
