Sound Connections Early Years Conference

March 6, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


With Open Arms: investigating musically inclusive practice in early years


On Monday 6 March 2017 at Lyric Hammersmith we will be proposing some solutions to address this imbalance and together as sector, explore approaches to ensuring that all children in early years, whatever their circumstance, are welcomed with open arms.

With contributions from Creative Homes, Pulse Arts, Creative Futures, Wigmore Hall, The Music House for Children, Tri-borough Music Hub, World Beaters Arts and Culture, this conference will:

  • Outline social need and explore existing barriers to musical engagement for children, families, workforce and our wider communities
  • Explore examples of innovative creative arts practice with isolated families, children in hospital settings, with speech and language difficulties and demonstrate the strength of evidencing impact
  • Discuss multi-agency approaches to delivery, the challenges and the value of cross-sector working to improve the quality of our engagement.
