Creative Wick Music Academy 2019

In the Spring of 2019, Creative Wick recruited 12 young East Londoners to work with some of Hackney Wick’s best musicians and producers to make some music.

In only seven, two hour workshops over 8 weeks, they wrote and produced more than 10 tracks before performing them live in a series of public concerts.

With many thanks to IQL, Lend Lease, Studio 9294, Wick Radio, Rudi Falla and all the professional writers, producers, musicians, engineers and technicians who made this possible, but most of all thanks to the students themselves.  This is who they are…
