What is Inclusion? Making Music is the Key!

Young people lean against a wall. They are nonchalant, cool, goofy, silly, defiant and more.

Download our paper on inclusive music practice, created as part of our Think22 strategic programme to boost inclusive practice in music education.

What is inclusion? Making music is the key! was created by musician and activist John Kelly and the rest of the Think22 team.

It is a sharing of our practice and our thinking. It is not a finished document, because our work is not finished and we hope to continue to learn and grow and find new ideas and ways to be inclusive.

Read it, think about it, question it, try it, rip it up, change it …and find your way on your inclusive journey.
