Our Blogs

At Quench Arts we like to share our learning. We do this regularly via our social media content, including through our resource page on Facebook and through our YouTube and SoundCloud sites. On this 'Blogs' page you will find information related to our adult wellbeing work, plus links to our Youth Music Network page which hosts all our blogs related to our Youth Music funded programmes. If you are looking for our Wavelength project 'on demand' seminar content, reflecting our our youth music and mental health work, this is available here.
