About the event:
Youth4Music is a network of youth who are passionate about music in their lives – learning, appreciating, creating and making music. Youth4Music provides a platform for youth voices, and leadership opportunities for youth to make a difference for music in their schools and communities. The program is “for youth – by youth – through music.”
Our objective with this first Youth4Music North Bay Event is to introduce North Bay youth to the Youth4Music manifesto. Our goals are:
- To engage in discussion about the importance of Aboriginal culture and create collaborative strategic actions for the importance of music and music education in North Bay
- to develop a community of young North Bay thought-leaders and change-makers who will actively engage in strategies for each of the 4 components of the Youth4Music Manifesto so that the Manifesto lives meaningfully in North Bay
- to develop and support a North Bay’s Youth4Music action plan
- to develop a Youth4Music North Bay hub
- to discover North Bay leader(s) to join a National Youth4Music Advisory Council
Participants (youth 30 and under):
- students (middle school, high school, college, university)
- student music teachers and music teachers just starting out professional and amateur musicians
This event is FREE (participants must be 30 and under).
