Learning & Participation

hcmf// aims to make new music accessible to increasingly varied audiences and participants. Our year-round Learning & Participation programme plays a vital role in forging and developing relationships with a wide variety of local communities and seeks to break down barriers and perceptions surrounding new music.

hcmf// offers creative musical experiences for participants whilst providing direct contact with high-profile, high-quality artists. Over the last ten years, hcmf// has worked with over 8500 participants across over 80 projects.

hcmf//’s Learning & Participation programme offers diverse events to a broad range of ages, from hands-on music experiences for babies and toddlers to events for school students, families, refugees and asylum seekers, people in prison, community members, emerging artists and regular festival-goers. The festival’s programme includes creative workshops, concert experiences, archival activities and professional development, providing participants direct contact with professionally established artists.
