Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

FIRST - Focus. Inspire. Rise, and Shine Together.
I'm going to provide a fair chance for people to follow there dreams no matter big or small.. no matter the age or gender.
We are raising money to start hosting these events within the local communities. Relying on donations from local scaffolders for stages. If these events are successful, we can get government funding for youth incentives. Open a Events & performing arts academy and training facility. Training the youth and giving them a sense of accomplishment and perhaps a insight to their futures and a reliable and safe place to be them selves.
Weather your talent is singing, dancing, acting, spoken word. We are going to be dedicated to providing the successful candidates with professional Studio time and training. Visual arts and design. There first gigs and overall management in beginning their careers as a performer or a Technitian.
Eventually opening a Talent Academy, where along side community projects youth can learn and train within the performing arts sector. Choreography, Music Technition, vocal coaching, Videography. SOUND engineering.
So much talent goes to waste in London and surrounding areas. So many young people are brought to a early death, or incarceration. There is nothing positive for our youth to do in there spare time! Our hope is to help combat street crime. Knife crime and anything gang related. By bringing people together with the power of performance!
This is a non profit campaign. I am Solely raising money to host these competions which will provide jobs, training and a safe place to go and do the things you love most.
The money will go to
- relevant Licenses from barking and Dagenham council.
- Equipment such as speakers, lighting staging equipment
- will help pay for SIA licensed security as a maximum capacity is 499.
- licenses for refreshments/food.
As I say this is a chance to give our youth. A chance to see them flourish. A chance to see them shine.

About the fundraiser
London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, UK
I was troubled in my youth and has no outlet. Nothing I could focus my energies into other than hanging out with friends. I got into a couple bad situations with the wrong people. I love music and bringing people together. I want the youth of today to have a better chance in life
