The fourth in a series of six online weekly workshops to support people working in the modern world of music facilitation, delivered in partnership with Arc.

Led by Phill Howley (Arc young person’s project manager and facilitator), this workshop will cover:

  • The practicalities, logistics and tech know-how needed to set up and plan music sessions online
  • Information about online delivery tools, including what works and what to avoid

Who this is for

Open to people at all levels of experience, these workshops are aimed at facilitators currently working, or looking to work, within informal, creative and inclusive music practice. They’ll be especially useful for anyone interested in supporting young people’s mental health and wellbeing through music. Youth workers or mental health practitioners with an interest in music are also welcome to attend.


Pay what you can. Suggested cost is £5. We know this is a challenging time for freelancers and the wider music industry, so please only pay what you can, if anything. We’re more interested in you coming along to share the learning experience.
