Band-Aid is a community-driven, youth-led development day designed for local singers, songwriters, solo artists, bands and DJs between 12-22 years of age. Young musicians join music industry mentors for a jam-packed day of workshops. Work, learn and collaborate with fellow musicians and music professionals. The day ends with a jam that goes into the night, and friends and family are welcome.

Past Workshops and Mentors

The Philosophy

Band-Aid emerged out of the community. Youth musicians want to use their powers for good–to create a positive culture for young bands in Surrey. They want to collaborate, work together and learn together. Band-Aid is building a network where everyone is welcome to contribute to a positive and constructive music community by acquiring skills and relationships that benefit their development as musicians.

The Ripple Effect

Band-Aid breaks down barriers and connects people. The musicians have continued to work together–planning events, building relationships and cheering each other on. The skills and direction gained at Band-Aid have resulted in more performance opportunities, and bands have since performed at Youth Fest, Surrey’s PechaKucha Series, Culture Days, the SASSY Awards, Surrey International Children’s Festival and more.
