Jubacana Receives Kerrching Funding

We are delighted to announce that we have been selected to receive grant from the Kerrching – Youth Opportunity Fund! The Kerrching – Youth Opportunity Fund is a pot of money that is specifically for young people.  The fund aims to provide opportunities for young people that will improve their lives and wellbeing.  It is managed by young people from Oldham Youth Council who make the decisions about the allocation of funds.

This funding will allow us to develop important links with the local community and other likeminded organisations to take our project to the next level and engage many more young people in the Oldham area. Jubacana began in Oldham in January 2017 and has gone from strength-to-strength, this important funding will allow us to develop our roots in Oldham and lead up to some great performances in 2017 & 2018.

The Kerrching fund is fantastic because funds are allocated by young people from Oldham themselves who are members of the Youth Council. We look forward to doing great things with the funds and getting more young people in Oldham involved in diverse music making and arts leadership. We will be releasing more information about how the project develops from now until March 2018.

If you know any young person aged 8-18 who would like to get involved, email us as info@jubacana.com or sign up through the website.
