We are seeking to help create a safer and more inclusive environment for young people to engage within traditional music throughout Scotland. The aim of this project would be to identify, comprehend and articulate the needs and issues surrounding safeguarding within traditional music delivery. We’re looking for a researcher to compile the report as well as co-ordinating a longer-term listening project alongside a conference for practitioners which would gather research to facilitate the report.
The main outcome of this project would be a report enabling the development of bespoke and improved safeguarding training for traditional music practitioners throughout Scotland. There is also an intended legacy of not only catalysing a forthright discussion at a national level on safeguarding and inclusion within traditional arts, but also in providing a platform where young people could be heard on the matter.
