Grantholder Evaluation Drop-In Session Registration is open for our drop-in session, please complete the registration link below which contains some questions. We will then collate responses and design a session to answer as many as possible. Whilst we might not have time to address every question, we will strive to cover as much as we can. We will post a follow-up blog on the network on what was covered during the session. Your attendance is still welcomed if you don't have any pre-determined questions. Submissions for questions will close on Friday 9th April.
New Reporting Templates
Following the recent launch of our new reporting templates for our grantholders, we’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions and responded to them. Please take a look and contact your Grants & Learning Officer or email us at email@example.com if you still have any questions. We’ll continue updating this document regularly.
VIP studios - free online production and virtual learning environment
As a Youth Music grantholder you are entitled to free access to Charanga’s VIP Studios - a great platform for remote learning that has music production software and tutorials built into a secure website. This means that young people can use it to produce music at home, so long as they have a computer and internet access. Find out more about the platform and if you would like to set up some tutor and learner log-ins for VIP, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pirate Studios Opportunity Pirate Studios are a chain of professional rehearsal studios located across the country. We have been approached by them to see if we know any young people from our projects who would be interested in using them free of charge, particularly at off-peak times. If you'd like more information please email email@example.com.
What are Youth Music looking for from music projects working with Disabled children and young people?
Last year, we published Reshape Music, a report that explored the lived experience of Disabled musicians. It highlighted the significant barriers faced by Disabled musicians to access music education and music-making. In Senior Grants and Learning Officer Adam Cookson's blog post, he explores what makes an effective project targeted at young Disabled musicians. It is particularly aimed at organisations working in this area who are seeking Youth Music funding for the first time.
Youth Music Awards
A huge thank you for all the nominations that have been submitted for the Youth Music Awards 2021. We are keeping our fingers crossed that it can go ahead as a physical event at The Troxy on Wednesday 20th October and will keep everyone up-to-date.
