BUILDING BRIDGES

Building Bridges is a music inclusion project funded by Youth Music and 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. During the project young people have performed at The Bath Festival, gone to gigs in their local community and in the city, as well as created and recorded their own songs.
