PLYMOUTH MUSIC ZONE HOLDS LANDMARK EXHIBITION WITH MUSIC FROM OVER 100 PLYMOUTH PEOPLE INSPIRING A FILM BY INTERNATIONAL OSCAR-WINNING ANIMATOR...
 

The Ark T Centre's My Normal Music project ran a pilot year funded by Youth Music in 2017. The project is an intersectional Project working with young people with disabilities (including mental health) and LGBTQ+ young people.  

This year has seen such growth in our Music Project, the young people we have worked with and our staff on the project. Below our Project Manager, Hanah Bruce, shares some of the learning and reflections on the project.

Like many others, we were deeply saddened to hear of the recent passing of a remarkable young woman who inspired us and so many people through her music and immensely generous spirit and love of life. Lynsey Dart was one of Plymouth Music Zone's much loved former employees. She was a talented apprentice and volunteer with us before moving on to study in London. And she probably taught us more than we taught her.

What is Reflective Practice?

It is a way in which we can work, look back on and learn from the work that we do. It helps to build self awareness and develop a better understanding of others. It is a way to continuingly learn and develop skills. It is a continuing cycle that feeds from one point to the next.
