In 2010 the Trust granted $50,000 to help The Depot Artspace with a music project. It involved working with musicians across Auckland at a grass roots level, supporting bands and musicians and giving them the opportunity to play live, to record their own music, appear on local radio stations and potentially develop a career in their chosen field.
Early in 2011 The Depot Artspace collaborated with students from Wesley Intermediate School and Karekare Recording to record some of the music produced by the young performers. The results are now on YouTube:
