The Power of Equality 2
Sound Sense’s comprehensive report on Youth Music's flagship Musical Inclusion programme calls for greater advocacy for musical inclusion, and more attention to the development of musicians and managers
The Power of Equality 2 front cover

This three-year long evaluation - by Kathryn Deane, Rob Hunter, Anita Holford and Phil Mullen - notes significant positive developments in formal and non-formal partnership working within music education hubs since the inception of the Musical Inclusion grants programme in 2012.

Twenty six projects were awarded Musical Inclusion grants across England for work with children in challenging circumstances. The aim of the programme was to support the hubs to be inclusive, both in terms of the children reached and the activities on offer, and to encourage strategic partnership working. The report makes a number of recommendations related to hub working, workforce development and developing a pedagogy for children in challenging circumstances.
