Event Highlight

  • This event has passed.

The first 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 Scott Lauchlan-Ford (42nd Street), this workshop will cover:

  • Some of the pressures faced by young people today, and the effects of lockdown and continued restrictions
  • Common mental health problems experienced by young people
  • A guide to working remotely with young people, including the importance of self care for staff
  • Tips on how to facilitate online groups with young people

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.
