Craig Berens, COO at YMCA Newark and Sherwood, explains how the organisation's Digital music project is helping to develop creative skills among young people.
In 2008, 83.3% of young people aged 11-15 participated in arts and crafts activities. This number has fallen by almost 16% in the last ten years, according to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. In fact, this year is the first time that less 11-15 year olds took part in the activities than those aged 5-10.
