British Arrows – Made in Lockdown

This year, we were the official music partner of the British Arrows Awards, and created music across the entire show. We’re especially thrilled to share this very special piece we created for the British Arrows “Made in Lockdown” category, in collaboration with Create Not Hate, an initiative set up by Quiet Storm’s Trevor Robinson OBE, with the mission of helping young people who are underrepresented in the creative industry unlock their potential.

Elements Partner, Andy Carroll, asked a group of young people to record their voices, sharing how they felt during lockdown in a few words. Jaiden Chang shared a poem that spoke straight to the heart of the emotional impact the pandemic has had on young people, which tied in beautifully with the work created in this unique moment in time. It was truly an honor to hear it air in person at the Live Stream awards ceremony.

The British Arrows are committed to finding jobs for young people and supporting emerging talent in the creative industries and The Elements Music are passionate about supporting the next generation of creatives in Music for Media.
