Description

An inspiring, inclusive music education festival

Join us for an innovative, ingenious day of exploration.

Get hands-on with new musical instruments and technology, discover new approaches to inclusive music delivery, hear from disabled and non-disabled music leaders working in the sector and network with people from across the country.

Disabled people are currently under represented in the music education workforce. This lack of representation has an impact on the way we educate disabled and non-disabled young musicians… On our and their aspirations, opportunities, progression…

There’s a huge amount of thought and discussion taking place right now around how to make music education more inclusive; how to share the joy of creative, expressive music-making with as wide a group of young people as possible.

We All Make Music addresses these discussions through a hands-on, creative approach.

Be part of the conversation.

Be part of the movement.

Be a change-maker.

Be a music leader.


Tell me more:

Inclusion matters! The leadership and workforce of the arts and cultural sector should reflect the diversity of the society we live in. That is possible. The movement for a diverse workforce is already starting to happen. Join in: together we can make it a reality and make a genuine difference to the musical lives and journeys of young people.

This event is part of Drake Music's Think2020 programme to strengthen inclusion in music education, supported by Youth Music.


What’s in it for me?

For individuals – Give yourself some time for CPD. This is a chance to reflect on your facilitation skills, join in with the experts, be inspired with new techniques, try out AMT, develop skills around new musical instruments, meet people from across the music education world and have fun!

For music hubs – Get ahead of the game on meeting your 4 core roles and tackling one of the key areas of development for music education. This is an opportunity for you and your team to join in with the experts, to get to grips with the bigger issues around access, to learn new practical approaches you can implement straight away, see what other hubs are doing, meet disabled and non-disabled practitioners who can deliver inclusive music-making and have fun!

For schools - Have a chance to take part in the activities that can support music-making with disabled children and young people in your school. Meet other school leaders and teachers to experience the ways that parternship can increase the opportunities to make music accessible. Try out AMT, build networks, talk with experts about how it can be implemented in your school and have fun!

Accessibility

Drake Music is committed to providing equal access for all attendees.

The venue provides step-free access, has an accessible toilet and a quiet space. We will also be providing BSL interpretation and closed captions and can support with moving around the building, as required.

We will ask for your access requirements when you book your ticket to allow us to plan timings and logistics for the event, thanks for your help with this. If you would like to book a free ticket for a Personal Assistant please email info@drakemusic.org.

Car parking is very limited at the venue, but there is a car park close by. More transport information will be provided before the event.



Using the term SEN/D

Drake Music is moving away from using the term SEN/D due to its broad meaning - it doesn’t provide the information we need, or that Disabled people identify with. We are responding to the discussion that the SEN/D label does not come from a place of ownership. It has been placed upon children and young people and denotes ‘other’ and ‘segregation’. We therefore prefer to say Disabled young people rather than young people with SEN/D.
