Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs Fiona Hyslop visited Longstone Primary School earlier today and announced £1.6 million of new funding awards which are part of Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative (YMI)
With her are pupils including on the left Cailyn Angus and Chloe Lumb.
This announcement comes alongside the YMI Impact Report 16-17. Creative Scotland administers the Scottish Government’s YMI programme which works to create access to high quality music making opportunities for young people aged 0 – 25.
This is particularly targeted at those who would not normally have the chance to participate, to enable young people to achieve their potential in or through music making and support the development of the youth music sector for the benefit of young people.
