Building Bridges is a music inclusion project funded by Youth Music & B&NES Music Hub working with vulnerable young people through workshops, one to one sessions and performance to develop resilience, confidence, and self-esteem as well as vital speaking and listening skills. The project enables Music Leaders to build long-term, meaningful relationships with participants and work in collaboration with youth workers from B&NES Youth Connect whilst based at Southside and Peasedown St John Youth Hubs in Bath and North East Somerset.
Building Bridges gives us the opportunity to sustain music making provision in our local communities, give young people access to the cultural life of their city and enable them to develop their own creative voices. The project is a real partnership between the music leaders, the youth workers, Bath Festivals and the young people themselves and the value of that partnership is clearly demonstrated in the outcomes for the young people.
Over the past year young people have performed at Party in the City, taken part in a summer project to create and record their own songs and are currently working towards a Bronze Arts Award.Go back
