“As the Director of Tech Styles International I felt an immediate responsibility to help support people in communities across Bradford that we have built up relationships with and the Tech Styles Community as a whole. I also felt it was vital to help the local, national and international breakin scene through utilising our expertise and skill set. This is a very difficult time for artists/creative practitioners, the loss of work in our industry due to the current lockdown has been massive. God put it in my heart to help and I immediately had a strong vision for a project, which could help many creative practitioners/artists. From the announcement of the lockdown up until this point, we at Tech Styles have continued to work and push forward.
We know that through our work we may be able to play a key role for arts and culture in overcoming the current situation and setting plans into motion that will continue to change people lives for the better long into the future. Thanks to God through prayer, research and strategy development we are now in a position to bring our project to life and we will be making announcements regarding this within the next two weeks. I have to say a massive thank you to Arts Council England for supporting our organisation and enabling us to bring our vision to life.”
