Learning & Participation

As well as developing a range of creative skills, our learning programmes build confidence and self-esteem, encourage team work and strengthen ties with the local community.

We are developing a series of programmes for young people throughout the year that:

  • Build up writing, composition and performance skills
  • Give insights into the varied career paths within the music sector through facilitated sessions with people in the industry
  • Provide opportunities to create and stage gigs at The Stow Festival and other music events.

The content of the programmes is being further shaped by the interests and needs of young people locally and we are currently consulting with young people living in the area as well as with organisations working with young people in the borough. These include Waltham Forest Music Service and Waltham Forest Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).

As well as developing a range of creative skills, the programmes aim to build confidence and self-esteem, encourage team work and strengthen ties with the local community. The programmes will be Arts Award accredited.

If you work with young people in the borough and would be interested in us developing and delivering a programme with you, please get in touch. Alternatively, keep an eye on our website for further details of upcoming programmes.
