In our annual gathering this year we will be opening up a dialogue on what power and privilege means in music education and for those working with and for children and young people. Who holds power when deciding on what is offered? How? And by whom? Do projects determine funders outcomes or the other way round? How are we enabling young peoples’ voices to be at the heart of projects, organisations and proposals? How does privilege affect experiences of music education, and entry into the music education workforce? How can voices of marginalised communities be heard and understood?

Hosted by Talia Randall, speakers from outside the music education sector including Imrana Mahmood (Arts Educationalist), Reveal Poison (Poet and Rap Artist) and Claire Mera Nelson (Director of Music, Arts Council England) will offer their perspective and insight. Breakout sessions will provide an opportunity for individuals and organisations to share best practice, theories and ideas. During breaks, delegates will be able to have Development Needs Analysis one-to-one sessions with the Sound Connections team. Talia will bring all of this together in a Long Table event at the end of the day, to enable all expertise, opinion and thought to be shared meaningfully in an interactive discussion. 

We are experimenting with a new format that will focus around our Long Table, which aims to improve how delegates are able to engage meaningfully with larger events. 

We hope to see you there, to join the Long Table discussions, network with a range of people from within and beyond the music education sector, and further your own thinking and practice. 

Some travel bursaries are available for practitioners who aren’t London based, please email for details.
