As Project Co-ordinator for Exchanging Notes Hartlepool I’m always looking for ways to broaden young people’s horizons. Something else I look for is new approaches to Arts Award. I have some work that I’d like to share that has achieved both of these aims.

Members of 'Runaway Samba' and Jack Drum Arts staff traveled to Recife, Brazil, to learn all about Maracatu from world class players 'Nação Porto Rico!

Funded by the Wellcome Trust, Song of Contagion is a very substantial project combining debate, discussion, workshops, and public performance. Launched in April 2016, and developed through workshops during the autumn and winter, it culminates in a week-long run of events in June 2017 at Wilton's Music Hall.

Our fantastic Summer School returns for the fourth year running. Building on the immense success of our three previous Summer Schools, 2017 promises to be even bigger and better than ever. Monday 31st July to Thursday 3rd August 2017 @ Goldsmiths College, London

They have put together a little video and are pround to have raised funds for youth Music. We hope it all runs again next year. What experiences did other organisations have?

Do you have students or know any keen musicians aged 14 and 18 and into folk music? Would they like to be part of the Cambridge Folk Festival? They could win the chance to perform with The Hub Band Project live in the Club Tent on Sunday 30th July 2017!

Mavericks is a project that bridges feuding communities through music. 

Across the local areas there have been escalating tensions over territory and rivalry between different groups. Mavericks shows the path to a bigger picture, a better perspective. Going to prison for a postcode or a rift on social media is the biggest waste of a life. 

The project has brought everyone together to celebrate their individual talents and show how people from different areas can put aside their differences, make peace and collaborate to make great things happen.
