We All Make Music 2018


We All Make Music was a very different kind of music education event, designed to bring together people from across the sector and across the country to think about how we can make music ed truly inclusive.

Taking place at Amnesty International HQ in March 2018 the event was the culmination of the 3 year Youth Music-funded Think2020 programme and was a tremendous success with 125 people attending.

Demonstrating inclusive practice in action, We All Make Music was created and led by Disabled and non-disabled people working together.

Highlights included:

  • the protest song written and performed by John Kelly, who then led the entire event to play the song together as a 125-strong ensemble
  • breakout sessions for people to get hands-on which used all different kinds of instruments, from traditional percussion to experimental new creations
  • the amazing participation from everyone who attended as they thought about what they could do to be a changemaker and to create real inclusion
