YMI COMMISSIONS: Live Life Aberdeenshire’s Youth Music Initiative programme is seeking innovative musicians and artists to deliver three new and exciting projects…

Deadline for applications is midnight Sunday 15th January 2023.

We are looking for experienced, creative and innovative practitioners to deliver these projects with children and young people in Aberdeenshire between February and June 2023.  There are three separate opportunities, but all are funded by Creative Scotland’s YMI Programme with the key aims of: 

  • Creating access to high-quality music-making opportunities for children and young people, particularly for those that would not normally have the chance to participate  
  • Enabling children and young people to achieve their potential in or through music making  
  • Supporting the development of the youth music sector for the benefit of children and young people 

Musicians/artists will work together to produce a time-tabled plan, including all supporting activities, which will deliver creative opportunities for children and young people involved in each project.  Musicians/artists will be approachable, empathetic and understand the challenges faced by the children, young people and communities they are working with, and collaborative with partners and staff.
