Thursday 26 February


Brady Arts & Community Centre, 192-196 Hanbury Street, London, E1 5HU

The morning will consist a workshop using John Stevens’ ‘Search and Reflect’ approach. This is a collection of workshop and performance pieces that focus on fundamentals and creativity in groups of varying abilities, both with and without instruments.

The afternoon seminar will explore the employment potential and training needs within community music, and provide a perspective on how to define and create model community projects from Sam Johnson – Head of New Projects at CM and long-term community musician. This is followed by a panel discussion, which offers you the chance to ask industry professionals any questions you may have and get the inside track on working in the community music sector.

The intention is to give participants a clear understanding of the variety of community music projects that exist in the UK, and to ask some key questions about the purpose and value of the activity.

Participants will be given information on where to go for training if they wish to pursue this path of employment.
