A networked approach to promoting meaningful musical pathways for young Londoners facing challenging circumstances.

Explaining the Pathfinders framework

In Taking Off we talk about Grassroots, Intermediary and Next Step organisations.  This relates to a model of progression created by Fairbeats! in their Pathfinders report.

As shown in the diagram below, an Intermediary embeds a culture of music-making in a Grassroots (non-music specialist) organisation, and is then able to support participants to access opportunities provided by Next Step organisations (those with a broader, open-access remit such as Music Education Hubs and venues).  It’s a process of moving from a Grassroots setting where particular needs are supported and looked after, to being able and confident to participate in projects with less targeted support.
