About the event

Join Raw Material as we celebrate Creativity and Wellbeing week with an evening of live music performance. Our Summer Sounds event is a showcase of music from Raw Sounds, our programme for people with mental health needs.

The live music performances features all original songs performed by singers, songwriters and musicians. Professional artists, including Floetic Lara and Potent Whisper, have been working with young people in Lambeth to create new music, offering unique sounds mixing hip hop, RnB, reggae and vibes from across the world.

Raw Material provides a range of high quality arts experiences and participatory programmes for young people and adults in Lambeth, Greater London, the UK and internationally. We invite local community groups, partners and business to visit our art centre in Brixton. You will have the opportunity to check out the facilities we have available including rehearsal space, recording studios and IT suite. Learn more about the work we do, speak to our staff about volunteer opportunities and about how we can work together to build community in Brixton.

Raw Sounds contributes to the wellbeing of the community by providing opportunities for young people experiencing mental health issues to express their creativity. Making music improves wellbeing through developing confidence, being creative and connecting with other people. Young people are welcomed in as individuals and musicians in the first instance. This allows us to raise awareness about mental health and tackle stigma by showcasing positive examples of hope and recovery. The Raw Sounds programme is a bridge between hospital and community. Through music making and live performance opportunities people are able to engage with their local community in a positive way.
