NOISE REACHES OUT TO YOUNG CREATIVE TALENT AT HM PRISON HINDLEY WITH BBC BUS TOUR
In partnership with Manchester’s BBC Bus NOISE visited HM PRISON HINDLEY, a youth custody centre in Wigan on the 11th of April.
The NOISE BBC Bus Tour is part of a national campaign to spotlight young creative talent and encourage young people to bring along their work, spend time on the bus and create something original to submit to the NOISE web site at www.noisefestival.com.
Graham Smith, PO Juvenile Caseworker at Hindley says: “Hindley is a youth custody centre that endeavours to provide positive opportunities for young people to gain qualifications and to address offending behaviour, whilst aiding them to reintegrate into society upon their release. Our regime provision includes skilled and experienced staff delivering several strings of learning and skills and we have many talented young people here working in fine art, sculpture, illustration and music.
“The NOISE / BBC Bus tour coming to the establishment at Hindley is a fantastic opportunity for our young people to submit their creative works to NOISE and have their talent promoted across the media – it gives them the motivation and belief that there are opportunities for them beyond Hindley and beyond a life of offending.”
Reece, 17 from Manchester who recorded his rap track says:”The NOISE bus at Hindley is a breath of fresh air, it gives us a chance to practice our music and more confidence that people want to hear our talents.
