Congratulations to partners, young people and parents – we won the Hubs Innovation Award!

 

We were proud to accept the ‘Hub Innovation Award’, part of the prestigious Music Teacher Awards at the Music Education Expo in London in February – beating four other hubs shortlisted for the prize.

 

William Deighan, Head Teacher from Varndean Secondary School and SoundCity Board member, Emma Collins, Music Learning & Partnerships Manager, Brighton & Hove Music & Arts and Peter Chivers, Head of Brighton & Hove Music & Arts (the three in the middle pictured, from left to right), collected the award on behalf of the Hub.

 

The judges said that: ”SoundCity is a hub that has gone as far as any in setting concrete, achievable goals, and in following them through with conviction. They include high-profile collaborations, specific support of those in challenging circumstances and a programme of clearly defined progression opportunities for all.” They continued: “No other hub had gone as far in achieving its priorities in a short space of time especially in the area of supporting children and young people in challenging circumstances and those with special educational needs or a disability.”

 

Locally, this award has been presented by the Mayor, Cllr Denise Cobb, and was presented at a full Council meeting on 27 March, collected on behalf of SoundCity by Hannah Corcoran, student representative on the Brighton & Hove Music Trust Board and Peter Chivers, Head of Brighton & Hove Music & Arts.
