Since 2013 our hosts Julien Jazz, Kieran Campbell, Conor McNamee Kwa Daniels & Producer Ryan Gallagher have led the way with off track music and on point vibes from around our Homely Planet.
Bounce Culture was founded in Derry, 1999, by Kwa Daniels, a DJ born in London, originating from Ghana, living in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Who we are
Bounce Culture is a team of creative industry facilitators passionate about empowering people to connect with their “Inner Rhythm,” which we define as activities that encourage happiness daily, increasing productivity. From 1999, we have celebrated music, people, diversity and creativity with over 13,000 participants through our workshops, courses and projects as well as staging, hosting and performing at over 600 events to nearly 75,000 attendees across U.K, Ireland, Europe and recently West Africa. Our gatherings have occurred in theatres, cafes, bars, barns, mansions, rooftops, courtyards, cellars, beaches, mountainsides and islands! Our programme beneficiaries have included Citi Group, Prince's Trust, National Citizens Service, (NCS,) Mencap, MTV and Radio 1. We have featured on BBC's Across The Line, Radio 1's B Traits and Greg James show, Channel 4's Ideas Factory as well as the Guardian and Observer Music Guides. We are a registered Community Interest Company (No.NI611756) and Open College Network Accredited Learning Centre (No.NI/60757).
Our Creative Arts & Digital Technologies and Personal Success & Well Being courses equip young & old with the necessary skills needed to survive and compete in the Creative Industries.
What we do
We connect with our "Inner Rhythm" through programmes and events, lead by our participants needs and take pride in organising and delivering innovative accredited and non- accredited programmes using creative technology and performance with personal development and cultural diversity at the heart of all we do. By embracing our holistic approach, participants learn invaluable and practical life skills by attending workshops, Q & A sessions, masterclasses and talks provided by creative industry professionals. We have facilitated international projects with support of British Council and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland as well as regional projects funded by Big Lottery and Community Relations Council Northern Ireland. Project partners have included Culture Night Belfast, Young at Art, Arts Care, Arts & Business Northern Ireland, Cinemagic, Culture Tech and IFI's Sounding Board.
Bounce Culture is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed on request. We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. Our Safeguarding Officer is Julien Raux.
We have performed across the U.K and Europe, including Belfast, Bern, Derry, Dublin, Durham, Edinburgh, Galway, London, Nottingham, Stockholm.
