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

Led by Ros Hawley (Lime Music for Health), this workshop will cover:

  • Ethical approaches to working with children and young people in hospital settings
  • The impact of COVID-19 and how to adapt sessions
  • Exploring practice through a journey of reflection
  • Key elements and approaches of music work in hospital settings

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.
