TtCM 2020: Save the date!

Our next Training the Community Musician (TtCM) symposium will be held in London on 17 - 18 February 2020 in partnership with Trinity Laban Conservatoire.

Just like the previous symposium this will be a two day event, featuring guest speakers as well as Open Space facilitation to once again empower the community music community to bring to the table issues that matter to them.
