Heavy Sound are very happy and excited to announce the continuation of the Community Orientated Opportunity Learning ‘COOL’ Music Project in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian Universty.
The project will once again focus on the inclusion and development of young people who have faced significant barriers in life, using music as a tool to build positive relationships and create opportunities for growth
The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF) is one of Scotland's most diverse cultural events, covering everything from music, film and visual art to theatre, dance, and literature.
The annual festival takes place in venues across Scotland from 3-26 May 2019, aiming to support the arts and challenge preconceived ideas about mental health.
By engaging with artists, connecting with communities and forming collaborations, we celebrate the artistic achievements of people with experience of mental health issues, exploring the relationship between creativity and the mind, and promoting positive mental health and wellbeing.
‘The Power of Music In Education’
Learning comes in various shapes and forms for students. Some are instantly invested in the classroom environment and others take time to adjust. In certain instances, pupils may be completely disconnected to learning.
Heavy Sound were featured on 2018's STV Children's Appeal and were visited by Minister For Communities Aileen Campbell who met with young people who had benefited from the projects.
The Appeal awarded Heavy Sound funding towards the costs of their music activities
