‘Musical Journey’ mapping for students in east London

In 2015, Sound Connections was awarded funding from UBS to develop youth voice and participation in east London schools. This initiative was centred around Wired4Music, the music council for young Londoners, hosted by us here at Sound Connections. Our staff, alongside Wired4Music members who co-facilitated,  visited schools in Newham, Hackney and Tower Hamlets to share this model of participatory practice with students in a number of ‘Musical Journeys’ sessions. The feedback from the students has been hugely positive, with young participants telling us “It helped me look more to what I want to do in the future and where I am in music” and “It was very helpful to discuss things regarding music opportunities” . The sessions also provided a good insight into the opportunities that young people are engaging with, and those they believe may be missing.

Look out for a full report on our findings, which will be published later on this year.
