Youth Creatives Music Production, part of the Copenhagen Youth Project, received funding from Guinness’s Aspire Awards, which support people to develop their careers, studies, talents or communities.

The project won the “Your Community” category and will help more youngsters take part in weekly studio sessions.

Stephen Griffith, Copenhagen Street project director, said: “This project is about working as a collective to develop young people’s musical talent and learn about the music industry through music production sessions, workshops and events.”

Sarah Thomas, executive director of customer services for The Guinness Partnership and award panel member, added: “Over the last five years we have given more than 270 Guinness customers Aspire Award grants – helping them achieve their dreams or build better, brighter communities for everyone.”
