Today we announce our SOS: Save Our Studio appeal to raise £2,000 to keep our recording studio open in Sierra Leone.
In 2012, Strummerville was delighted to announce their support for WAYout Arts, a charity whose amazing work with disadvantaged young people helps to bring joy and opportunities into fledgling peace-time communities in Sierra Leone.
We provided funding, equipment and training to set up a recording studio in Freetown for WAYout who use music to inspire, give hope and to bring people together, ideas which fit perfectly into the Strummerville ethos of social mobility through music.
Tragically, however, the sense of unity brought to the community by WAYout Arts is under threat and unless funding is found immediately the centre will be forced to close down to the detriment of both the musicians who record and play there and the people employed there.
