Dying for a Smoke – Nine Locks Youth Centre




Dudley Kick Ash gave the young people who attend Nine Locks Youth Centre a grant to be creative and use the arts to spread the smokefree message.
They chose to write a song, and employed a musician to work with them to develop their skills. Then they decided the song would reach a wider audience if it was illustrated, and became the soundtrack to a DVD, so they employed a photographer and digital artist to work with them to create a visual interpretation of their lyrics. And so their song ‘Dying For A Smoke’ became an audio-visual experience to share with other young people.
