The title ‘Changing Trax’ as the creative arm of the organisation has been slowly adopted from our prominent Youth Music funded project also entitled the same. As the brand expanded, youth representatives across the city from numerous programmes came together to stake the claim that ‘Changing Trax’ should in fact refer to any PYF programmes that are creative in nature; and so it was. The programme as it stands now, offers a whole host of opportunities, including; music, dance, industry insight, media production, broadcasting, photography, fashion, film-making and volunteering.
A key angle in Changing Trax is to develop a wide range of creative channels, which young people may not have previously had the opportunity to be exposed to. A priority task is always to identify and align emerging and appropriate referral pathways into the programme. To date these include; local arts and cultural organisations, the local authority, Schools, Colleges and Extended Learning Centres, Employability agencies and a number of migrant service providers.
