Sound Splash

Developing music making for children and young people in challenging circumstances.

Through a combination of partnership development, networking activity, continuing professional development and direct project activity, Sound Splash addressed gaps in provision and supported organisations undertaking musical inclusion work. The project was co-ordinated by Bristol Music Trust, one of twenty-six organisations across England funded by Youth Music’s Musical Inclusion Programme, between 2012 and 2015. From 2015, a further grant from Youth Music is enabling us to develop the work into A New Ambition for Inclusive Excellence, building on the learning from Sound Splash and taking musical inclusion even further.
