Constuctor Music Project
“Constructor” – This is our new music project which incorporates the two Saturday youth groups and also young people from our Holiday Programmes. It is a year-long project that will allow all those involved to create a musical art piece that can performed by not only Lifeworks young people, but also others who have an interest in being creative.
These one-day session where all of the people involved; young people, volunteers, staff, musicians and artists can come together, learn together, agree CONSTUCTOR principles/ground rules together and most importantly; make music together.
Led by Moor To Sea this is an amazing opportunity for young people with learning disabilities to work with musicians from all over the UK. Moor To Sea practitioners are experienced in facilitating music-making sessions that are accessible and include everyone, promote developing skills and follow the interests of the young people – our “co-creators”. Together, some incredible work and forward-looking projects have emerged, each phase building on the last, as we see the young people becoming more skilled in co-creating music together

Hear from our Young Adults
Niamh: “There are no limits! We can do what we want and make it as loud as we want.”
Tommy: “I didn’t know what Constructor meant. But after I talked it through with my friends at YASS I realised that it could be many things. It can mean a song writer, a composer and even the people who are making the music. We can all take part.”
Joseph: “I had a go on an electric guitar. I’ve never done that before. It was fun making lots and lots and lots of noise!”
Lucy: “I like the idea of something that lasts more than just one week. This is a project that I can do with my friends. We are going to create something wonderful that my friends and family are going to be so proud of me for doing.”
