Open Fund: Valley Community Theatre

For:

Live in the ValleyTen NW young musicians are using Valley Community Theatre as a base, rehearsal space, live venue and a safe space. They are supported from composing to gaining industry knowledge to performing live. The musicians will work with Mark Rowland, who will lead a team producing and supporting the young musicians to improve their craft, confidence, abilities and profile. These are musicians who have overcome numerous hurdles, but have followed their dream and continued to develop as artists. But they find themselves banging their heads on a glass ceiling. We want to help them shatter this ceiling by working with a team lead by Mark. We will seek to encourage industry interest and provide insight to our musicians in how to progress in the music industry. At the Valley Community Theatre they will rehearse, compose, record in our studio and play live. Their music will come alive at the Valley. Mark Rowland is a musician and producer with a disability who has collaborated with a range of artists; his work with DJ Fresh perhaps his most famous. ‘As society and professionals’ understanding of my condition grew and with the addition of technological advances in retina eye scanning, they came to realise that I was not a tambourine player!’
