Partnership with The Sound Lab, supported by Creative Communities
- We have recently entered into an exciting Partnership with The Sound Lab, which has kindly been supported by Creative Communities
We have recently entered into an exciting new partnership with The Sound Lab; with the support of Creative Communities.
The Sound Lab have been based in and around Glasgow since 2003, and are a grassroots, volunteer-run charity providing creative opportunities to communities across Glasgow and beyond.
The Sound Lab share our creative vision, recognising that ‘music matters’ and that music and creativity shouldn’t just be available for those who can readily access it and afford it: it should be available to everyone.
Over the next few weeks, an abundance of diverse music tutorials will be facilitated through a range of tutors who will deliver online music lessons for our young people. The first wave of tutorials will act as taster sessions, which will allow young people the chance to try new and alternative ways of expressing themselves and enhancing their musical skills and creativity.
We recognise the importance and role that creative arts can play in developing relationships between young people, building and developing a caring and supportive GSC community as well as inspiring individuals to support each other to reach their potential.
The reasons why GSC young people participate in creative arts is extensive. However, for some, creative arts provide a means of expressing emotions, to articulate powerful messages, to learn new skills, to find hidden talent or passion. For others, it is a form of entertainment or an opportunity to experience happiness and joy.
Participation in arts-based projects provides additional therapeutic benefits such as the space and time for reflection, self-understanding, the opportunity to communicate with others, make new friends and personal development.
We are very excited about our new Partnership with The Sound Lab for so many reasons and can’t wait to hear the musical masterpieces that our young people will soon be creating.
