4Elementz History

 

 4Elementz was founded in 2012 by Kelly Thorne a probation officer for Devon and Cornwall. After having been awarded the innovation award 2012 for her Rap Therapy work in prisons, she was inspired to leave and set up 4Elementz.  

 

4Elementz has always been funded by the lottery other charities. For the first five years, the primary focus was working with local young Rap artists at risk of offending. Kelly Thorne produced music and media portfolios for the beneficiaries and provided work experience placements. The project has enabled a number of the long-running members to flourish and build a career in music. 

 

Our future goal is to roll out a range of free workshops for schools and youth organisation to book for free. These will provide an opportunity for a large group of young people who would not normally be able to access creative arts training and production services.
