Sound Connections Challenging Circumstances Music Network, celebrating Refugee Week

The Sound Connections Challenging Circumstances Music Network (CCMN) brings together a wide range of practitioners and organisations who are experts in the field of challenging circumstances and inclusion in London. The network exists to strengthen inclusion practice and provision in London, through a training programme, action research and advocacy. If you’d like to be connected to the network, please contact jennifer@sound-connections.org.uk

 

A number of CCMN members have a particular focus on music-making with refugees and asylum seekers. Soundmix and Fairbeats contributed to the next in our series of research into youth voice in challenging settings, which you can read here. The case study, researched and written by CCMN associate artist Gawain Hewitt, explores how to make a youth forum such as Wired4Music accessible to young refugees and asylum seekers. You can read the previous report in the series (looking at youth voice in a mental health context) here.

CCMN also recently commissioned Music in Detention to look at inclusivity in Hillingdon, through an evaluative report about an exchange project between Harmondsworth Immigration Removal Centre and young people at Hayes YMCA. We look forward to sharing the findings in our next newsletter.

In the meantime, we’d like to wish those of you working with refugees and asylum seekers across London a very happy Refugee Week! Please share your celebrations and events with us @sconnections #refugeeweek
