All In One

Band on the Wall will yet again be hosting a celebration of Youth Arts and performance, Sunday 23rd of March will see the first ever ‘All In One’, a collaborative arts event that brings together several different disciplines and arts organisations from across Greater Manchester.

As well as providing a great performance opportunity for several groups of young artists, what makes ‘All In One’ unique is that it is organised entirely by three of the Band on the Wall Foundation’s Young Ambassadors.

Guided through this process by our delivery partners Brighter Sound, our three young ambassadors, Matt, Leyla & Bradhave received training in project management, marketing, finance fundraising and much more, giving them all the skills they need to unlock their creative potential and make this fantastic event come to life.

Through projects like ‘All In One’ Brighter Sound aims to develop young artists and a future creative workforce through youth cultural leadership projects.
