In October last year (2016), we ran one of our Musical Inclusion Conferences as part of our Northamptonshire Music Hub's Fund B project, Music Forge.

Whilst we have run several of these in the past, this one was special in that it built our exisiting relationship with colleagues from Goldsmith's College in London, but also initiated a new partnership with the University of Northampton as part of their Erasmus funded project: "Digital Learning Across Boundaries". Not only was this chance to share our work with our Hub partners but also brought in 50 arts education researchers and academics from universities across Europe. The day also ran in parallel with the Fun Palaces initiative.

Although it's been a few months since the conference, whilst my colleague, Louise Tyrrell, and I have been preparing our Second Interim Report for Youth Music, we thought the information we compiled at the time about the presenters was worthy of disseminating more widely..... so here it it!

If anyone is interested in the work and research of the presenters, do get in touch and we'll pass your contact details on. 

The conference was generously supported by funding from Youth Music, The Paul Hamyln Foundation, iTeach, and run in partnership with The University of Northampton, iTeach Fun Palaces and Fermynwoods Contemporary Arts. 

This is about a new initiative we’ve run through our “Music Forge” project which developed some new partnership working and gave our musicians a chance to work with a whole new cohort of young people.

This is story of one of our most successful SEND initiatives to date and how through careful reflection between the team and with parents/carers we have found a winning formula.

Not-for-profit community music organisation soundLINCS have appointed Glenn Tinsley as the new Chair of its Board of Trustees, replacing Rob Williams, who has stepped down after five years in the role. 

The Spark Arts for Children was founded in Leicester in 2003 as a multi-arts form festival including contemporary music to provide a platform to present the very best of British and international children’s arts.  The Spark exists to enable children aged from 0-13 and their families to enjoy the opportunities offered by the arts as audiences, learners and as creators of their own art. Throughout the year we facilitate and commission a range of creative educational events in schools and community venues, such as artists in libraries and children’s centres, which complement and extend the work of our annual arts festival.
