ArtsXChange

Local community partners

ArtsXchange is the arts project run by Oxfordshire Youth. The project places young people’s creative confidence and development at its heart. It was designed to help young vulnerable learners across Oxfordshire discover and celebrate their creative powers and make long-lasting connections with world class arts and cultural facilities in the community. As part of the project young people have participated in county arts events, performed in local theatres and produced their album artwork for local musicians.

Towards the end of spring 2014, Music In Detention teamed up with Oxfordshire Youth’s artsXchange project, via its delivery partner Music for Change to set up a 3-way dialogue between detainees at Campsfield House Immigration Removal Centre, Kidlington and two different youth groups working with Oxfordshire Youth. This partnership resulted in some creative exchanges of lyrics, beats and freestyles and saw real bonds develop between the three groups who participated. Recordings were made and the CD 'Friends in the City of Atlantis' was produced.
