The second part of the project will revolve around mentoring and for that the young creatives will be visiting Elemental UK, who are based in Cornwall. The mentoring will involve a five day residential stay where the young creatives will plan a sound map of the life in London compared to rural life by the sea. The five days in Cornwall will be split between Newquay and Falmouth.

What an adventure!
Over the five days we worked with these young people we saw them flourish in confidence and developed skills that enabled them to work better as a team.
The majority of the activities were water based and the young people, many of them had never embarked in water sports before embraced the challenges and all of the task set. Many of them overcame the fears they had of water.
The biggest success was witnessing two of the non-swimmers, pushing themselves to learn how to swim in such a short space of time.
The activities included surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding and coasteering, all of which require learning and adapting new skill sets in a short period of time.
