Musinc:  Developing a transnational quality framework and resource bank to use music within non-formal pedagogy to achieve social and musical inclusion to describe the job role 'community musician'

A project funded by the EU under the Erasmus+ Adult Education Training


Wren Music is the coordinator for this project, which features a partnership across five countries: Italy, Romania, Latvia, Hungary and UK.

The project aims to produce a ‘quality framework’ demonstrated as a website and on-line training course (Intellectual outputs) that is applicable across the partnership, and all this will be shared through a website, which can act as a resource for those wanting to improve their practice.

Each partner will document aspects of their work to demonstrate ‘best practice’ and case studies to populate the resulting website. There is some budget towards this preparation.
