Spitalfields Music and our dedicated and diverse team of freelance of music leaders will build on decades of experience of working with children and young people in London's East End to bring communities together post-corona virus, through creative and singing projects with local schools.
The East End of London was hit particularly hard by C-19, with disproportionate numbers of deaths in our local British-Bangladeshi communities. Children and Young People had their education disrupted, with few outlets for creativity to boost their learning and look after their well-being. As they get back to education, schools anticipate some children finding 're-entry' difficult, as they learn how to navigate a new world while processing the traumatic period through which they have lived.
Spitalfields Music, working in partnership with our neighbourhood schools & Tower Hamlets Arts & Music Education Service (THAMES), will offer musical opportunities for young people in communities hit by C-19. We will provide creative workshops linked to the PSHE curriculum at KS2 which are co-designed with young people, & run The Bigger Sing, a way for young people across Tower Hamlets to work with professional musicians before mounting celebratory performances as part of Spitalfields Festival
