In response to the Wired4Music Manifesto, young Londoners are pledging to have a say in their own musical futures. Pledges range from personal vows to policy changes. Adults and organisations are pledging too. London is listening and people are embracing the value of empowering young musicians to have a voice.

Remember: every pledge matters!

“Work to save my local music service against budget cuts.” Thomas, Barking & Dagenham

“Plan an event to promote the Wired4Music Manifesto.” Keiran, Camden

“Find out how I can be actively involved in youth-led projects at Barbican”  Peter, Kingston

“Use Kinetika Bloco as a platform for young people to be heard.” Dominic, Southwark


From adults: 

I pledge to…

“Speak to my senior management team about how I can bring young people further into the decision-making process at Youth Music” Dr Douglas Lonie, Research & Evaluation Manager, Youth Music

“Try to influence Arts Council language to make it more accessible to young people.” Adam Jeanes, Arts Council England

“Give you City Hall and get Gove and Boris along” Paul Broadhurst, Senior Officer – Music, Greater London Authority
