The first ever Up the Tempo event was held on Saturday 5th February in Central Croydon, South London.

Over 130 young people attended from all over London to get advice from the industry panel and try out DJing, music production and vocal coaching. The event wrapped up with an open mic.

Massive thanks to our panel G FrSH, Jak FrSH, Yasmin, Chantelle Fiddy, DJ Logan Sama, Ashley McDermott and Peigh & Boya of Nu Brand.

Croydon Move 4WD is a youth-led project taking place in Croydon October – December 2010 where young people take charge and find out where the positive opportunities, sources of advice and resources are in Croydon. This info will be shared with other young people using a youth-designed and managed website with short videos and interviews.

Very excited to announce that over the coming months we at 4WD will be working closely with the team at Clocktower Arts to support them with youth engagement and participation for two exciting new projects.

So today I had a de-briefing meeting with the wonderful Livity crew (big ups to Mark & Oyin particularly for all their hard work!) who we (The 4WD Foundation) worked with to create and deliver the Google Enterprise Apprenticeships Programme, which is now fondly known as #TeamGEA. Preparations for the next phase of the GEA are already under way, very exciting stuff!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with and support 10 fantastically talented and motivated young entrepreneurs over such an intensive 3 week period.
