Wired4Music Rising Futures 2015

For its third consecutive year, Wired4Music took over Roundhouse to bring you the best in youth voice and participation. Following the Wired4Music Manifesto theme of community, the day looked at ways in which young people and organisations can strengthen their networks and reach out to others, focusing on what a musical community is to YOU.

Wired4Music was joined by Hackney Youth Music Forum and Brighter Sound who teamed up with Roundhouse and Wired4Music members to bring you speeches, breakout sessions and a panel discussion to get people really thinking about their own musical communities. As well as inspiring talks from amazing young people and organisations from across the country, we had photographers, radio hosts and illustrators captured the key moments of Rising Futures 2015. Hooked up to a live projection screen, the artists created an amazing visual to accompany the panel discussion.

Check out Storify highlights of the day here.

On top of all this, we celebrated our fifth birthday in style with a W4MLDN cake! The day allowed us to reflect on the amazing work done by all the young people involved and congratulate the first cohort on completing their RBS Leadership Programme.

So a massive THANK YOU to everyone involved for making it the best Rising Futures so far – we can’t wait to see what the next year holds!


As a small charity we rely upon donations from generous individuals, trusts and companies to support our work with children and young people across London.
