Description

More Music and Brighter Sound present

Unheard Voices

An inspiring and informative one-day music education conference that asks 'whose voices aren’t being heard?'

Unheard Voices will interrogate, challenge and stimulate the national conversation around what being musically inclusive really means.

Aimed at anybody who plans, manages or delivers inclusive music activity for children and young people across the North West, the day will feature a brave and frank set of discussions that will leave us with a clear idea of who is missing from our work, and what we can do to reach and include them.

With provocations and contributions from a range of speakers including:

  • Matt Griffiths (Chief Executive, Youth Music)
  • Dr Tim Harrison (SICK! Festival)
  • Ruby-Ann Patterson (Multidisciplinary artist)
  • Sam Malik (Contact Theatre)
  • Steve Oates (Score Creative Education)
  • Phill Howley (Musician and facilitator)
  • David Sebuyange aka DAYZY (Artist)
  • Sarah Angel (Artist)
  • CHAINES (Composer and multi-instrumentalist)

Sessions will include:

Generation Phone - The Problem’s Not Them. It’s Us.
Led by Tech For Good
The effects of technology on young people are constantly portrayed as negative. But have we got this wrong? Have we just failed to keep up over the last decade? And are we now excluding young people if we don’t embrace new technology?

Music and Mental Health
Led by Rod Kippen, Creative Producer, 42nd Street
How can the arts and culture support young people with their emotional well-being and mental health? This session will explore how creative engagement can function alongside therapeutic and psychological interventions.
