We are excited to announce that we have received the backing of the National Foundation for Youth Music with a 3 year grant which will bring musical activity to schools and community spaces across the High Peak.
Youth Arts Programme Manager, Sophie Mackreth says “We are so happy to have won this grant, which will fund music at the heart of our whole youth programme, from early years to open workshops for age 8+ and new partnerships with some of our local High Schools.” Young people should look out for local music workshops from Easter and a chance to take part in an annual Summer School which will produce a performing arts show for the general public. Young participants can also submit their work for a national Arts Award and join the steering group that plans future projects.
Our next job is to sit down with the steering group and choose material for the coming year – and to raise funds for any non-musical artforms we want to use! There’s never a rest from grant writing!
