Youthreach Music Awards 2011

As the X Factor contestants once again flaunt their talents on our TV screens, youths from across Ireland will display their own x factor in the first ever Youthreach Music Awards. The event will take place on the 26th October in RUA RED South Dublin Arts Centre Tallaght as young adults from across the country will converge on the capital to battle it out for the most prestigious musical prize within youthreach.

Over the course of 2011 a number of Youthreach centers participated in songwriting workshops with CraftZone. The youths were guided through the process of song writing and learned to write and record a song. The result is a fine display of original creativity from young adults who had never written nor performed prior.
The idea behind the awards comes from CraftZone’s vision of using music as a transformational tool in the development of the underprivileged youth. CraftZone believes that services such as songwriting can help youths realize they have potential, to take control of their lives and responsibility for the choices they make.
And now to top off their creative endeavors the youths will have their achievements acknowledged in a ‘Grammy-style’ award ceremony, which will be judged by both IMRO and Hotpress. You can hear the six finalists in the ‘best song’ category at While the tracks are available as free downloads all donations would be very welcome to cover costs of this non profit event.
