Welcome to AMPLIFY Podcasts' first season, The Lockdown Sessions. The Lockdown Sessions is the first series of podcasts created during isolation by members of The RISE Collective, a youth organisation that uses creative arts and media to amplify the voices of young people. In each episode we aim to explore a different theme via the work of an array of emerging and established artists, curated for your listening pleasure.
