Rising Futures: Participation Now

Following on from last years’ hugely successful event, Roundhouse and Wired4Music proudly present the return of Rising Futures.

This year we’re back with a brand new symposium where we will be exploring young people’s participation in the world of music.

Participation doesn’t just mean ‘taking part’ – it’s about empowering young people to take a lead in shaping their own musical futures. We will be bringing together experts and young leaders from across the field to reflect on their participation practices and discuss how music organisations can bring young people into the heart of everything they do.

This event is devised and delivered by Wired4Music, the music council for young Londoners hosted by Sound Connections. The council have recently initiated a groundbreaking manifesto for young musicians in London. We now invite you and your young people to join the conversation so we can add everyone’s voice to the campaign and create real change.

This event is part of Roundhouse Rising Festival 2014, supporting the development of new music from young and upcoming artists. We are delighted to be working in close partnership with the Roundhouse and their Youth Advisory Board.

The event is made possible with funding from the National Foundation of Youth Music.


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.
