Connecting Threads: Sharing Practice

by Zoe Greenhalgh in Events, News


This national Connecting Threads Network event will explore project working

– successes, challenges, impact & potential


Come & find out about two Youth Music funded early years projects that have been taking place in the the North West

Bring your own ideas to a discussion about the potential for future collaborative work & explore how we can make this happen


The session will begin with project presentations from:

Cate Madden and Susie Jones (Edsential CIC) will be sharing the outcomes of their Youth Music funded project, Leaps and Bounds: delivered over three years in areas of high economic deprivation, providing a range of creative music-making activities to support positive social and musical outcomes. Cate and Susie will share the successes, challenges and legacy of the project, as well as suggest practical solutions to delivering safely online and in settings during this time.

Shared Sounds, a project run by The Bureau Centre for the Arts in Blackburn, delivered in partnership with Note Weavers. Sorrel Harty and Sue Ridyard will share some of the learning, the challenges and the change which is taking place as a result of the delivery, as well discussing how this programme highlights the strength of partnership working across organisations.

Following on from these presentations we will discuss aspects relating to the development of future projects such as effective design, outcomes & impact, & collaborative partnership working.
