As a small charity we rely upon donations from generous individuals, trusts and companies to support our work with children and young people across London.
What is the Wired4Music manifesto?
Our Wired4Music members are currently working on a manifesto, which will address key issues on the minds of young musical Londoners.
Why are we writing a manifesto?
Drawing from every corner of London, our young Wired4Music members are passionate about a variety of musical interests. They represent a diverse cross-section of creative young people – all wired for music.
Set-up in 2009 the council quickly established a mission: to voice opinions on music education and raise awareness of musical opportunities. In 2011 they were invited to consult on the Mayor of London’s music strategy for young people. In 2012 members spoke as panelists at the musiclearninglive! conference. In 2013 members coordinated with the Roundhouse to design the Rising Futures day of conversations between young people, policy makers, educators and music industry professionals about the future of music.
Wired4Music have established themselves as the only pan-London youth council with a music focus, and our members are eager to influence the bigger musical picture in London. The Wired4Music manifesto will act as a starting point for these important conversations.
