Last year Sloop Group were invited to be part of the COOLture Conversations project as part of Hull City of Culture. It was a wonderful oppourtunity for the group to work with a Gamelan that they had previously met on a trip to the National Centre for Early Music in York. As well as working with the enchanting instruments of the Gamelan, the group had two sessions with the poet Cassandra Parkin, to create a poem that would become the starting point for their own orginal composition using the Gamelan. The whole project culminated in a public peformance at Hull City Hall. You can find a copy of the poem the group created attached to this post.

A video showing the personal and musical impact of the Open School Orchestra (OSO) project at Pencalenick Special School. Alongside music from the students, an interview with headteacher, Helen Campbell, shows how a group of students with special needs and autism with significant communication issues came together and found their voices through music, both individually and collectively. This film charts their journey over the 9-month project, and shows some of the music they produced.

This discussion group has been set up as an online space for all things related to music-making, special edcuational needs and disabilities. There is a wealth of great practice from all around the country represented on the Youth Music Network, and it is intended that this group should provide a virtual connection to close some of the geographical gaps. If you are new to the group, please feel free to post and let everyone know a little a bit about yourself and what you do!
