The Liber8 Music Project is an afterschool programme for 14-to-16-year olds living in Dublin 8 and its surroundings. The Digital Hub and BIMM Institute Dublin established this pilot programme in September 2017.
The free-to-attend programme is a wonderful opportunity for young people, who may have limited exposure to music and digital media, to immerse themselves in a creative programme, which will also help them to acquire those 21st century skills they will need to succeed in their careers.
Over 10 weeks the young people complete three modules:
- Module 1: Music Styles
- Module 2: Introduction to Performance Techniques
- Module 3: Introduction to Recording and Sound Design
The name of this programme – The Liber8 Music Project – was inspired by the community in which The Digital Hub and BIMM are based; The historic Liberties area of Dublin 8. It is one of Dublin City’s most colourful and creative communities, and its young residents will have an opportunity to unleash their creativity in this programme.
