Wesleyan has just launched the Welseyan Foundation, a fund designed to provide financial support for local community groups and charities, to make a positive difference across four key themes: health, education, social development and innovation.
Calling all performers, live music venues and volunteers! Make Music Day UK is coming on Wed 21 June.
Make Music Day is an international celebration which first started in France in 1982 and now takes place in over 120 countries and 750 cities across the world. Make Music Day UK aims to turn the country into a stage, and offer a full spectrum of performers the opportunity to display their musical skills.
National Charity, "Music For All" kindly donated some music instruments and amps for young people who attend the Beats, Bars and Banter project in Rugby, Warwickshire. The music equipment will be used within the weekly workshops that take place every Thursday 4-6pm at Hill Street Youth Centre, Hill Street, Rugby. Young people will also be able to take home the acoustic guitars so they can continue to practice away from the workshops :) For more info on "Music for All" visit: http://www.musicforall.org.uk/
Our Multicultural Music Making sessions include in-depth introductions to a range of music traditions, enabling a critical engagement with international sounds. As the choice of music we learn and gain inspiration from is based on the heritages and cultural interests of the young people in the project, we value all the opportunities we have to connect with our participants’ families.
