Volunteering

Agitate is looking to build a bank of volunteers with interest or expertise in music or community arts. Please get in contact if you are interested in the following activities:

  • Teaching young people how to set up live and recorded sessions (rigging/monitoring/electronics).
  • Providing pastoral support or mentorship to our young people. Internal training and DBS checks will be required.
  • Helping with facilitation of sessions; leading warm ups, helping coach performance techniques and choreography.
  • Teaching young people new instruments to expand their musical vocabulary.

If you think you have something else to offer then we would love to hear from you.

Space

As a young initiative based in London, finding venues for our live sessions, recordings and gigs can be difficult and expensive. We are always on the look out for people who can help connect us with new spaces and provide free or reduced-rate access. If you run a studio, theatre, pub space, college or community hall, then please drop us an email.

Equipment

Remember when you got your first pair of decks? How did it feel when you wrote that first song on the charity-shop acoustic guitar? Ever stayed up all night mastering your bands demo on GarageBand?

We’ve found that the cost of musical instruments and production tools is often the foremost factor in hindering the progression of young musicians with experience of homelessness. Let’s face it, when you’re living off £57.90 a week a shiny Fender Stratocaster or a copy of Logic Pro is going to be fairly low down on your priorities list.

Agitate would love to distribute your old instruments, recording equipment, computers and software to our young people in an effective and safe way. We want to give them the tools to excite, express and comfort themselves through music.

Get in touch if you want to know more about how we monitor donations or have equipment you would like to pass on.
