Community Music Facilitators Open Call

Community Music Facilitators Open Call

Wednesday, 20 September 2017, 10.00pm

The National Concert Hall’s Learning & Participation programme seeks to engage people with music, to enhance people’s understanding and appreciation of music and music making, and to encourage personal, community and social development through music.

The Learning & Participation programme aims to contribute to national musical citizenship through a wide range of quality, accessible, and socially relevant initiatives.

This is an open call to compile a panel of potential facilitators for two of our community projects, Music in Mind and Health & Harmony, in the south/southwest, west/northwest and Dublin regions.

Music in Mind: Music for Mental Health

Music in Mind is a programme of participative music workshops for people in the community living with mental health difficulties. Either singing in a choir, or playing percussion as part of an ensemble; in either case the focus is on participation and enjoyment.

Our vision is that anyone living with mental health difficulties should have the opportunity to participate in collective music making, and to experience the benefits that this can bring.

Health & Harmony: Music for people living with dementia

Health & Harmony brings music performance to people living with dementia, and their families and carers, in a programme of accessible and informal performances in Alzheimer’s day and respite care centres.

Our vision for the programme is that anyone in Ireland living with dementia should have the opportunity to experience, and benefit from, listening to live music performance.

Deadline: Sunday 17th September 2017
