Brixton’s creative and wellbeing hub, Raw Material features our in-house band, Raw VIBRATION! alongside other members of our Raw Sounds creative mental-health and wellbeing programme. Join us for a sway and a bop as Raw’s members take you on a musical journey, through self-devised tracks, covers and general good vibes.
Raw Material Music and Media is a community arts and creative enterprise hub based in Brixton. Our purpose-built 3-storey building hosts 2 recording studios, computer suite, DJ, music and video production equipment and a live room for performance, workshops and ensemble work. Our specialism is music as a creative tool for self-expression, and we have supported thousands of young people and adults over the years to create, produce and perform new music.
In 2012 we developed an award-winning programme for people experiencing mental ill health called ‘Raw Sounds’. We work closely with the NHS in South London who refer people to our range of creative participatory opportunities in music, lyric writing, ensembles, artist development and performance, helping those people to express themselves creatively, grow and develop and collaborate with others. So much talent comes out of this programme which we are so pleased to share with Vault Festival 2023.
