Invitation to quote for Review of Practice: Children and Young People’s Participation

DSCF6961 min

Music Generation believes that it is every child and young person’s right to be given the opportunity to access and participate in music. We believe passionately in the power of music making to transform lives. We believe that through the joy of creating, learning, and performing music together, children and young people’s artistic, educational, social, and personal development is empowered. Building upon our advocacy to date, as we implement our 2022 - 2026 Strategic Plan, we will continue working towards making this right a reality. Recognising that children and young people are at the heart of what we do, we now wish to develop our knowledge of children and young people’s participation to inform and shape Music Generation’s facilitation of their voice.

The Music Generation National Development Office invites quotations for the completion of a review of practice in children and young people’s participation. It is anticipated that the review will identify learnings from the literature including existing practice within the sector, models of participation, etc. and will provide recommendations for how Music Generation can empower and support the voice of children and young people (CYP) and consider how their voice may influence the organisation in the future.

A detailed description of the required output along with submission requirements can be downloaded from the below link:
