At the end of the Practice Sharing Online session, we asked if you'd help us help you by doing a bit of homework.

This was to let us know the very *specific* challenges you, and the musicians you work with, have in sharing practice on the Youth Music Network or online in general.

For Gathering One, we asked you to each produce a poster that would take us on a whistle-stop tour of your Musical Inclusion programmes - who's involved, what it looks like, how it's set up, who you're connected with, how you're developing practice, etc. Here are the photos we took of each poster.

Following up on the first four sets of notes from the breakouts, here are the next and final sets of notes. Photos of your posters summarising each Musical Inclusion project will follow.

There were some hard-working and valuable discussions in the breakout sessions at the Gathering. To supplement your own notes, here are the *first* four sets of notes that we took - more to follow.

It's Friday lunchtime, you've been doing great stuff all week. You deserve a break and a natter with like-minded colleagues around the virtual Musical Inclusion water-cooler. How about letting everyone know about one thing you're pleased about from your MI work this week and one thing you're struggling with?

You shared some great ideas, suggestions and offers on the graffiti walls, 'what could I share to help effective practice' and 'one idea for sharing practice to help everyone'. Next step is for you to put them into action, and in many cases share them online ...

As we promised, here are all the handouts and slides from the first gathering of Musical Inclusion grantholders and partners. Please share them with musicians and others who are part of your Musical Inclusion programme, and encourage them to sign up to the Network and join the Group.

Got a niggle with the Network or an idea for an improvement? Some support you need so you can use Facebook/Twitter/other networks to share your practice? Here's your chance to help us help you ...

... in the last few weeks, we've been gearing up for the Musical Inclusion Networking & Evaluation gathering, which is happening this Friday in Birmingham

Communities of practice are groups of people who share a passion for something that they know how to do and who interact regularly to learn how to do it better. We think that's a useful way of thinking about the Musical Inclusion networks that are forming. Here's a helpful diagram that explains more.

This group is the place to ask a question, start a discussion, share ideas and make connections. It originally was a discussion group for those funded under Youth Music's Musical Inclusion grants, but from 1 April 2015 it is open to all.

 

HOW TO POST IN THE GROUP:

1. Log in to the Youth Music Network (contact network@youthmusic.org.uk in the comms team if you've forgotten your login or don't have one or see this page: http://network.youthmusic.org.uk/help-support)
