Inclusive Practice in Action: Power and Privilege

Thursday 13 February 2020

10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Amnesty International UK, 25 New Inn Yard, EC2A 3EA

A Sound Connections Knowledge and Practice Exchange

£35 freelance rate; £60 organisations with a turnover of less than £250k; £90 organisations with a turnover of more than £250k

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 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?

Compered by Talia Randall a series of inspiring speakers from outside the music education sector will offer their perspectives, workshops will offer more intimate opportunities to explore theories, ideas and share practice; and a Long Table event at the end of the day will enable all those attending to meaningfully participate in the conversation.

*Sessions Shout*: would you like to present a theory, idea, feedback from a project or host a discussion? We have six 45 minute slots available to share your practice on Sound Connections core themes: music and social justice; youth voice and participation; music in the early years. All those presenting will receive a free place to the event. Details of how to apply coming soon
