University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) and Bristol Music Trust (BMT) have agreed a new strategic partnership to help young musicians become more employable.

It is hoped that the five year partnership will provide a framework for new initiatives and activities between the University and BMT – which runs both the Colston Hall and Bristol Plays Music.

Included in the partnership is a shared commitment to develop industry leading educational facilities at Colston Hall to provide musical excellence for ambitious youngsters – including those with special educational needs and disabilities.

Champion talent development

Both UWE Bristol and BMT will also work together to champion talent development, diversity and skills so students can become employed within Bristol’s vibrant music and cultural scene.

Louise Jennings, Associate Dean of Strategic Partnerships for Faculty of Arts, Creative Industries and Education, said: “We are really excited to be working with BMT to develop world-class music education facilities at Colston Hall, and are committed to working with BMT to deliver a creative and cultural curriculum for Bristol.”

The BMT believes the new partnership is the perfect opportunity to enhance cultural and creative experiences in Bristol and provide a support structure for young people to become employed in the industry.

Musical excellence for ambitious young musicians

Louise Mitchell, Chief Executive of Bristol Music Trust, said: “We will work together to drive inclusion and people’s creativity across the city, which is part of everything we do. It will also feed into our plan to secure Centre for Advanced Training status, providing musical excellence for ambitious young musicians, including people with special educational needs and disabilities.”

The trust is also looking to build creative partnerships with local, national and international artists and organisations, to inspire and energise music and educational programmes.
