Showcasing the creative and dynamic talent of the next generation of community music practitioners.
Date: 11/12/2023 – 11/12/2023
Goldsmiths Community Musicians invite you to discover new Music Leaders and experience how their reflective, empowering methods improve the quality of life for communities.
Join us for an afternoon of music workshops, guest speakers, networking and discussion on the present and future of community music.
This event is devised and presented by graduating students from the Certificate in Workshop Skills (Music) course.
Music practitioners will present taster sessions in their own area of specialism, from found-sound to traditional folk, music tech to singing with elderly people.
Guest Presentations and Panel Discussion
As well as hearing from course tutors Phil Mullen and Graham Dowdall,
guest speakers Kathryn Deane (Sound Sense), Philip Flood (Sound Connections) and Fran Hanley (Musician’s Union) will discuss perspectives on community music and current issues within the field.
