MAP Charity is helping young people get involved in the creative industries

A new initiative has been launched in Leeds, which will help students to develop recording, editing and presenting skills.

They'll be learning the craft using interviews with a variety of artists previously conducted by creative Josh Crowe, who has teamed up with Leeds' MAP Charity to launch the programme.

Crowe will be working with the students to delve through recordings of his interviews with artists including Wu-Tang Clan, Nightmares On Wax and Afrodeutsche.

The work from the students will result in a podcast, which will be used for fundraising purposes, and help young people gain a qualification and new array of skills.

"I've always been a massive fan of the work going on at MAP," explains Josh. "I really can't wait to collaborate with the charity and the students, getting their valuable input and ideas towards curating this podcast.

"I hope by collaborating with the students it can give the interviews a new lease of life and almost re-contextualise them. I also really hope the podcast can help raise awareness of just how special MAP is as a charity, the work they do is truly amazing".
