ACTIVATE grant leads to national music youth conference !

Sound Connections’ investment programme ‘Activate’ is designed to help fund and support London-based Music Education Hubs to develop and embed youth voice in their work.

2021-22 Activate grantees Tri-Borough Music Hub and Kingston Music Service youth forums have joined forces to curate their first ever online youth conference for young musicians aged 10-18 across the UK – and want to invite young people from across the UK to attend.

At this free, national conference, young musicians will have the opportunity to have their say on what they want from their music education and how we can ensure every young person in our local areas have equal access to music tuition and opportunities for music making.

Here at Sound Connections, we’re really proud to support this brilliant initiative and excited to see what comes out of the conference. Find out more about this event below.

Elevate! – An online youth conference designed by young musicians for young musicians across the UK! Sunday 3rd July 1.30-5.00pm

Tri-borough Music Hub Youth Voice Council and Kingston Music Service Youth Forum have joined forces to curate their first ever online youth conference for young musicians across the UK. Both Youth Forums have been working together online and in person at the Royal College of Music to plan, produce and curate this exciting upcoming day which they hope as many 10–18-year-old musicians will be able to attend. This is open to ALL young musicians from all boroughs and music hubs.

  • With interactive workshops (including beatboxing, jazz improvisation and body percussion), attendees will have the opportunity to hear what’s going on in other hubs around the UK from young people themselves.
  • Join us for this free conference, where music education matters!
  • With guest speakers including MOBO award winning Moses Boyd, and workshops by Shamime Ibrahim, Matt Holborn and Inspire-works, young musicians will have the opportunity to have their say on what they want from their music hubs and how they can ensure every young person in the local areas have equal access to music tuition and opportunities for music making.
