Training the Community Musician 2023

We are excited to partner again with the University of Aberdeen for our annual TTCM event, which the brilliant Sage Gateshead will host on 20 and 21 February. As in previous years, TTCM 2023 will embrace an ethos of provocation and inclusivity as we explore themes of creating brave spaces, intentions and challenges around social activism and political engagement with plenty of Open Space for attendees to dig into their own meaningful discussion and musical-based topics. We hope to see many of our members and community music friends and colleagues there!

We support, promote and advocate for our community musician members and the community music sector in the UK and internationally

We offer various categories of membership with different benefits. Find out which membership is for you.
