Wired4Music Council Meeting at Spotlight

Held at Spotlight, the incredible new youth activities centre in Langdon Park, Wired4Music were delighted to host their third manifesto council meeting.  Welcoming representatives of several different organisations including Beatnik PR, Brighter Sound and Hackney Music Service, Wired4Music members and young people from Hackney Youth Forum gathered to discuss progression within the music industry.

Led by Wired4Music members Kaisle Grai and Michael Olorunfemi, five key questions surrounding the theme of progression were presented. The group then split into smaller parties to discuss topics in further detail and present back with their conclusions. The main questions asked were:

  • How do progression routes differ in music to that of more traditional career routes?
  • How can we increase local opportunities?
  • How can young people progress backstage/behind the scenes?
  • How could your musical journey have started earlier?
  • What are the smaller steps we can take to achieve larger goals?

As well as this, member Delicia Edgar gave a brief talk on the Leadership Programme, which is currently choosing its second round of applicants. She discussed why Wired4Music is important to so many young people in London commenting on how “Wired4Music opens up channels between decision and policy makers” allowing the young people involved to “shape their destinies”.
