Playful People Making Change

How and Why.

So you know what Soundcastle does, but it’s the how and why that make it so special.
You’re in the right place!

Community Programmes:

People's Music Logo

There are many kinds of community music – from choirs, to drum circles, to family workshops. For Soundcastle, community music is all about generating new interactions within families, and between people. We co-create environments where people, no matter their story, can feel safe, heard and celebrated.

We make our own new music. But sometimes we sing nursery rhymes. We’re ok with that. Our approach is completely responsive to the needs of the people around us. Our programmes evolve with the people they support.

Do we have a syllabus? No. A book of activities? No. A session plan? No. So how does it work?

Well! If you’ve ever been in a Soundcastle session, you have probably experienced a deep sense of joy and connection. A feeling of being deeply welcomed and heard. Maybe creatively inspired? Maybe noticed. Our brilliant team of facilitators are highly attuned to the needs of people, both in terms of emotional wellbeing and creativity. We shift power by co-producing programmes that are owned by the community they serve.
