About this Event

This FREE workshop is open to anyone wishing to learn more about the importance of musical participation in everyday life, especially for those in society who may struggle to be heard through words alone.

Speakers include:

  • Mark Radcliffe, radio broadcaster and University of Manchester alumnus
  • Professor Caroline Bithell, Head of Music, The University of Manchester

Find out how these principles and practices are used by Manchester Camerata in their innovative ‘Camerata in the Community’ programme, which stretches across the north west of England. Members of the Camerata team will share real-world experiences about their work with young people in schools and people living with dementia.

There will be opportunities to ask questions and contribute to the discussion.

This event is part of the 2020 ESRC Festival of Social Science, and is presented in partnership with Creative Manchester, the Music Department and the Division of Nursing, Midwifery & Social Work.
