Wired4Music Council Meeting at RBS Headquarters

Wired4Music council members and funders met on Thursday 17 July at RBS Headquarters in Liverpool Street to discuss the INVESTMENT strand of the Manifesto campaign.

What do funders look for when they fund a music project for young people?

How and to what extent should funding organisations involve young people in the decision making process?

What role should young people play in helping organisations funds being fairly distributed in their community?

Amy Wilson from Youth Music spoke about how the funding process currently works in Youth Music, and pledged to involve young people more in the conversations about the funding process.

Our Wired4Music Leadership Programme has been made possible with the support of RBS Inspiring Youth Enterprise, and Nick Howe joined our panel discussion to pledge his continuing commitment to ensuring that young people get the information they need about funding and investment. Nick pledged a mobile business advice session that would visit areas across London and offer advice to young people about funding – on a bus!

Wired4Music said goodbye to Amy Schumacher, who is moving on from the post of Programme Coordinator after two years working with our members to develop our ground-breaking Manifesto campaign and Leadership Programme!

Watch this space for further exciting developments in the campaign!
