The sessions are designed to encourage children and young people to explore the possibilities of working within the music industry, whilst educating them about the harsh realities of social media.
We offer various programs at Freedom Factory, that allow us to provide age appropriate sessions:
- Senior Sessions are aimed at years 7-11 secondary school children. These 3hr sessions take place at various venues at weekends or evenings.
- Junior Sessions are aimed at years 3-6 junior school children. This 90min session takes place at various schools at the closing of day.
- Foundation sessions are aimed at Reception – Year 2 infant school children. This 75 min session takes place at various schools at the closing of day.
The sessions are divided into dancing, singing and song writing. Each term the focus will be to encourage the children to openly share ideas, creativity, thoughts and feelings within a safe space. Each term will be topic based, looking at the some of the many issues our children and young people face today. Children will have the opportunity to develop their writing skills either through song, rap or poetry. Writing is a powerful tool that all young people can use to help release any anxieties they may have. Each child will be given their own personal workbook at the start of their journey at Freedom Factory. These books are designed specifically for each age group and offer positive affirmations and support to help with writing and self -development.
Each term the factories will be visited by industry professionals to offer advice and knowledge about the various aspects of working within the music industry.
At the end of the year, the children will have the opportunity to perform in front of family and friends, agents and supporters at a main theatre, alongside other factory groups. This is a wonderful experience for all, and provides a platform for everyone within the factories, to share their unique brilliance which not only magnifies their achievements, it unifies the diversity within the groups.
