Wired4Music’s 5th birthday year is a time to reflect, think big about what’s next, and set ambitious goals. That’s why we’re taking the first steps towards a national youth music council, which you can find out more about here. We’re excited that as part of our nationwide commitment to supporting youth voice, we’re working with partners in and beyond London to establish new platforms for young leaders. Here are the latest partner profiles and highlights from our experiences so far…

Last week, Wired4Music took a trip to the seaside to lay the foundations for a Brighton youth music forum. The Brighton & Hove Music & Arts service (SoundCity Hub lead) and community music organisation Rhythmix, have invested in a city-wide initiative to learn more about Brighton’s music offer from the perspective of the young people it serves. Over the coming weeks, Sound Connections staff and young leaders will begin the process of convening a youth forum by first delivering a series of youth consultations reaching young people in a variety of settings.

A top highlight from our day away was a shared enthusiasm for youth voice as a means to break down the barriers between genres, and provide opportunities for young people from different musical backgrounds to connect and collaborate; something that Wired4Music is passionate about.
