TOMORROW'S WARRIORS ARTIST DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME helps aspiring young jazz musicians discover their magic and achieve their creative ambitions. Free access to this programme has proved crucial in nurturing the nascent talent and early careers of so many of the most exciting UK artists currently tearing up the international jazz scene.
Tomorrow's Warriors' Artists include Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia, Sheila Maurice-Grey, Cassie Kinoshi and Nérija, Femi Koleoso and Ezra Collective, Binker Golding, Shabaka Hutchings and Sons of Kemet, Eska, Denys Baptiste, Soweto Kinch, Mark Crown, Andrew McCormack, Zara McFarlane, Mark Kavuma, Camilla George, Nathaniel Facey and Empirical, Peter Edwards and Rhythmica, Jason Yarde and J-Life, Robert Mitchell, Byron Wallen...the list goes on and on and on!
Emma Warren, Red Bull Academy: "If you want to know who passed through their doors, it might just be easier to ask who didn't: The list is long and comprehensive."
Based at Southbank Centre in London, Tomorrow's Warriors offers a pioneering, comprehensive programme of learning and training which, in particular, champions and supports young people from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, girls and those whose financial circumstances might otherwise lock them out of opportunities to pursue a career in the music industry. The core ethos of Tomorrow's Warriors is 'each one, teach one', where each generation supports the next, sharing skills, passing on the legacy and building a vibrant, supportive community.Despite the undoubted success of Tomorrow's Warriors in supporting the development and early careers of so many jazz artists over the past 27 years, our programme is under threat of closure due to lack of funding.
All of our learning and training activities are £FREE at the point of access, and always have been, so that no young person is excluded for financial reasons. We want to keep it that way.
Arts Council England funds Tomorrow's Warriors to exist as an organisation, but all artistic and educational activity needs to be fundraised for separately. There is no funding in place for our programme at Southbank Centre beyond the end of 2018, and it will take time to secure new funding.
So we're reaching out to all those who believe in music's power to transform lives, and who feel passionately about diversity and inclusion in the arts, to help us keep this vital programme going for the benefit of our young people and for the good health of the wider jazz scene.
Please DONATE TODAY while we continue the search for new funding.
