Aged 14-25? In a band or are a solo musician? Spoken word or poet? Want a platform to share your work?

SHIFT is a brand new project which is giving young people a platform to share their thoughts for the future. We are currently looking for young bands & musicians, spoken word artists and poets to submit work or come and perform at our upcoming events.

As part of our SHIFT programme, we wish to create a hybrid event of recorded and live work and information about the project. This event will be produced by Wiltshire Creative and will take place at Salisbury Arts Centre and Salisbury Playhouse. The event will be premiered online with live streamed and recorded content for audiences to enjoy watching and listening from the comfort of their own homes.

• We are looking for youth bands and solo musicians to prepare 2 songs from a decade of your choice. The theme for this section of the event will be ‘Music through the ages.’ We want to have wide variety of music played and welcome any style or genre. We also welcome original music too!
• If you are a poet or spoken word artist, we would like you to submit a piece with the theme of ‘Amplifying young voices’ which will also form part of our programme.
• Part of the events will be pre-recorded at Salisbury Playhouse during April 2021 and will be streamed on multiple different platforms including social media, YouTube as well as promotion from Wiltshire Creative through press outlets.
• There has also been interest from local radio stations, which will become part of the broadcast during the premiered events.
• These recordings will also feature at Salisbury Arts Centre during an exhibition of the SHIFT programme.
• For those able to perform on our stage technical support will be provided, including sound mixing, lighting and recording.
• We are pleased to be able to offer rehearsal time for these sessions prior to recording where possible.
• Wiltshire Creative are able to contribute to expenses such as travel and parking.
• Pre-recorded audio and or video submissions are also welcome if you are unable to perform in person.

To register your interest, please fill out this form by Friday 2nd April.
