In case you missed it, we held a Q&A session with the band Hot Chip. There were some really great discussions and you can re-watch it on our YouTube channel here. 

Youth Music Awards 2021 Next Gen Roles
We are extending our deadline for creative and video production team roles at the Youth Music Awards 2021 to Fri 23 Oct at 12pm. All applications we have already received will still be considered, and applicants will be notified by Fri 6 Nov if they have been successful.

Youth Music aims to support young people in the early stages of developing creative careers, therefore we could particularly like to encourage applications from those aged 25 or under. Applicants don't need to have taken part in a Youth Music project to get involved. 


Coronavirus Resource Hub 

A reminder that we have a Coronavirus Resource Hub on the network which has been recently updated with an excellent blog post from Music Mark featuring a summary of the current music education guidance as well as the Positive Youth Foundation's recommendations for supporting young people within the guidelines for social distancing and staying safe.

Fund B - Open for Applications
The deadline for Fund B applications is two weeks today. Applications are open for Expression of Interest now. We have recently added some Frequently Asked Questions to the Fund B network page. 
Network Blog of the Month

This issue's top blog from August is This is Derby - What young people think, from Baby People. They wanted to use their Youth Music project to find out what young people thought about the city, their sense of place and the changed they wanted to see.

"It is clear that young people are very happy to have opportunities to share thoughts and opinions and want to make change. We now need to seek avenues at City Council executive level to make these voices heard and for change to take place."

Check out their Soundcloud page, featuring great tracks from their participants.
