The RecordShop wins Culture Seeds Award

Culture Seeds is the Mayor of London’s micro-grants programme - supporting great ideas for grassroots, community-led arts, culture and heritage projects across London.

Mary Otumahana received funding from the Culture Seeds programme to fund her social enterprise, The RecordShop, which provides free studio time for disadvantaged youths, aged 16 - 25.

Over the course of 10 weeks, The RecordShop engaged directly with 26 young people, through recording sessions and work placements, providing 17 young artists with the opportunity to record a song at our studio, 4 young artists to showcase their songs and 9 students had work experience at our studios.

Mary Otumahana won the Culture Seeds Awards for the 'People Powered Culture' category this year for the organisation and delivery of The RecordShop programme.
