Scoping a National Youth Voice within Music

Sound Connections is excited to be launching a new research project this month, focused on spotlighting youth music leadership in England. This research will aim to shine a light on existing models of youth music participation and organisations hosting youth music projects with a view to gaining a greater understanding and awareness of the landscape of young music leadership across the country. We hope to encompass all regions and the full diversity of music organisations working with young people, so that together we can support more young people to experience music in ways that best meet their needs and desires.

We are currently in the process of calling out for organisations who would like to be involved in this research. A survey will be sent out in the first week of February, which will aim to gather information from participants regarding the youth participation work that happens within their organisation. This information will then be used to write an interim report and create an interactive map. We will share this information amongst participants and identify three case studies to explore in detail and showcase. This will culminate in a national summit for all attendees to discuss the potential for a National Youth Music Council.

If you or your organisation would like to contribute towards this research then get in touch.
