Booking is now open for the Northern Music Education Hubs Conference, to be held at Leeds Town Hall on Wednesday May 1, and will focus on Workforce Development, Diversity and Digital – with the question running throughout of ‘What’s Stopping Us?’.
The event is free for northern hubs and services to attend.
Facilitated by Isla Wilson of Ruby Star Associates, the 2019 Northern MEH Conference will focus on Workforce Development, Diversity and Digital – with the question running throughout of ‘What’s Stopping Us?’. You will have time to reflect on diversity and unconscious bias both within your organisation and in the work you deliver with, by and for children and young people. We will explore good practice examples from across a range of settings and consider how digital impacts on music in the wider world and what opportunities that might present for your work with children and young people. There will also be space for reflection, discussion and 'next steps' planning.
Presenters include DJ School, Yorkshire Sound Women, John O’Halloran (Calderdale College Music Dept), Nordoff Robins, Paul Whittaker, Ocean Sparks, Kycker, Miranda Arieh and others plus special performances from Park Community Academy Brass Band and a local SEND choir.
Hub leads from Northern Music Education Hubs are welcome to book two free places, for themselves and a colleague, in the first instance. More tickets per Hub may be available closer to the date of the event. Registration and refreshments are available from 9:45am for a 10:15am start.
