Recipient Org: Description We are a small music charity dedicated to improving and extending access to, participation in and enjoyment of music and the arts more widely, through active, innovative projects so that as many people as possible can enjoy the well documented benefits of participation- increased well being, self esteem and confidence, sense of belonging, better able to focus in other areas of life, exposure to new ideas and wider world. We work in identified hard to reach areas often where there is socioeconomic deprivation alongside rural access deprivation. Jackdaws core values are inspiration, access and inclusion, and our mission statement is “Bringing music to life by enabling creative expression”. Throughout the year Jackdaws runs an intensive programme of events including; -Youth and Community programme. The largest and most valued part of our output. In 2015-16 we had contact with 10,000 children and young people in Somerset. -Weekend music courses for musicians of all abilities. -Young Artists programme featuring the prestigious Maureen Lehane Vocal Awards. -Concerts linked to our events and projects. We are also a lead partner in the Somerset Music Education Hub, Sound Foundation Somerset funded by ACE and DfE to facilitate music education across the whole of Somerset which has enabled us to increase our output and reach even further.
