Taking Off: Sound Connections Challenging Circumstances Music Network Conference 2015

We are delighted to announce that the theme of this year’s Sound Connections Challenging Circumstances Music Network (CCMN) conference will be progression.

Last year we launched our research project Taking Off, and set out to map the progression routes of young musicians in London facing challenging life circumstances. This autumn we invite you to join us and our CCMN members in a day of sharing our findings, celebrating best practice in the field, youth leadership in action, and discovering what we all mean by ‘progression routes’. Prepare to be provoked, encouraged, and called to action.

This is the opportunity of the year to bring together this varied field of practitioners, organisations, research and approaches, to celebrate collaboration and development, create new links and forge new journeys. This event will not only celebrate Taking Off, but will share current work from CCMN members, spotlight some ground-breaking action research that is being delivered, and spark dialogue between people from all corners of the music education community – from participants to policy-makers.

We will shortly be announcing programme details and we look forward to revealing more about the conference very soon. Join the conversation at #CCMN and watch this space for exciting developments!
