Making Tracks 2018-2020

'Making Tracks' is an exciting new Youth Music funded project - in partnership with Trinity Community Arts, Basement Studios and ACE Bristol - that from February 2018 will be providing life-changing music making experiences and enable young people from challenging circumstances to take the first steps in their music-making journey.

Bristol is known for being home to an authentic, independent music scene. Now three renowned music institutions have united to provide young people in the city with life-changing music-making experiences.

Aspiration Creation Elevation (ACE) is a music space run at Docklands Youth Centre (BS2 8UA), by those who grew up taking part in other local music projects, supporting other young people to make their own music.

Basement Studio, based at The Island (BS1 2AG), has a 25yr track record of helping young people make music and was even part of the early stages of the journey of pioneer of drum and bass collective Reprazent, Roni Size.

Trinity, based at The Trinity Centre (BS2 0NW) is one of Bristol's most loved independent live music venues, hosts live touring acts as well as providing a platform for local artists and access to recording studio / mastering.

Together, we are launching Making Tracks; An exciting programme of music-making sessions, workshops and showcase events for aspiring young musicians in Bristol. Young people will have access to 121 support, performance opportunities, learning from touring artists, industry workshops – even leading on projects – to take the next steps in their own music-making journey.

Specific Days and times of session will be published here and on Trinity's website in January 2018, but if you have any questions or need more information, please get in touch with Dave Thomas, Trinity's Training Coordinator: 01179351200 /
