Promoting the importance of cultural diversity and social inclusion is central to the mission of youmanity. To this end, several projects are devised and delivered every year - previous projects have explored themes as diverse as human trafficking, social identity, sexual, gender and age discrimination.
Following the same social and community engagement framework, our next project will bring together youngsters of different ethnic background and nationality to create a most innovative project in which music will be the common language.
“A Song for Youmanity”
Youmanity is currently looking for musicians with some knowledge and experience of working within an ensemble or a group(s). Each musician will need to be in possession of their own instrument(s) and able to play one of the following:
drums - double bass - keyboard - guitar - sitar - saxophone - trumpet - accordion - berimbau - cuica
Youmanity is also looking for three singers with the following expertise:
jazz - soul - pop - RNB
‘Song for Youmanity’ will be written as a joint effort by the music group. Each member will be able to contribute, expressing their own ideas about the arrangement.
Rehearsals will take place weekly at a central London location as soon as the group has been formed.
Please note that this project is on a voluntary basis and no remuneration will be available. Our only motivation is to produce a memorable piece of music dedicated to the importance of Diversity.
If you would like to be part of this innovative, NON-PROFIT project, please email us with a brief CV to: one(@)youmanity.today
Join our team of friendly volunteers or, if you have a project in mind, get in touch.
We would love to hear from you
