Story

TWC (The Warm Collective) is a collective of rappers, singers, musicians and volunteers based in the North East of England who reflect the global nature of the music with members of TWC coming to the UK from Angola, The Gambia, Jamaica, South Africa as well as the UK. Our vision is shaped by the power of music, culture and sports to be a positive force for unity and change and a way to bring people together and to support and grow positive change for people and communities.

Alongside our current studio and live work, we have set up an charitable foundation and education project called Time for Change Foundation (TforC), which is starting by working in The Gambia, as well as the UK, with plans to develop into Angola and other locations in the long term.

We have established links with organisations in The Gambia, with whom we plan to create partnerships in The Gambia based upon music as a force for bringing people together for good reasons and to develop good practical and life skills and for Unity.

Our vision is for the TforC project to offer opportunities for young people in The Gambia to record and produce music and develop their talent. Alongside these aims, participants in the programme will be given training in practical work skills such as agriculture, carpentry and enterprise skills to develop their economic independence which improve their economic circumstances.

We are crowdfunding to help us raise money to register TforC as an NGO in The Gambia & the UK. This will allow us to begin to purchase equipment and spaces and visit The Gambia to set up the project and establish a TforC HQ there. Currently we have had positive support from agencies in The Gambia that are willing to provide resources and support. We are in dialogue with the Office of The President of The Gambia and the Department for Arts & Culture who have received our project proposal favourably and are in support of our aims.

Your support to help us get this project off the ground with us will enable people in The Gambia to improve their life chances in a country where resources and opportunities are scarce. Longer term we want to create opportunities for rappers, singers & musicians to come perform in the UK to help develop opportunities and talent, whilst also going over as TWC to work collaboratively in Africa.

Any donations to help we are most thankful for & we will be seeking to provide everyone who supports us with ongoing information over time.
