Rory Graham aka Rag"n"Bone Man visited Brighton and Worthing during a series of short documentaries raising awareness of AudioActive and its social change projects for underprivileged teens.
The documentaries follow Rory speaking with participants at of the local charity, highlighting the positive impact the charity is having on young people, their mental health and their future prospects.
Adam Joolia, CEO of AudioActive, said:
" .. Partnership is a key part of our philosophy and young artists are at the heart of our work, so it"s great to collaborate with such a positive role model.
"Many of the young musicians at AudioActive come from disadvantaged backgrounds, where there is violence in the home or where they are affected by mental health issues, and music offers the platform to overcome these obstacles.
"Our mentors not only support emerging artists, they also help them become a positive influence on a new generation of talented and marginalised teenagers.
"We've just started on our next mission, to further nurture young talent through establishing the UK's first Centre of Excellence in urban and electronic music."
After supporting the work AudioActive does to nurture local musical talent informally since 2012, Rory came on board as a patron of the charity when his international career started take off in 2016.
Commenting on the collaboration, Rory said:
"AudioActive are doing something to ensure that regardless of wealth or background, young people get a chance to be creative. I can't support that enough. Big love."
