In recognition of its significant reach and impact over the past 20 years, YMI wants to celebrate the programme’s participants and their achievements, pay tribute to those who make it all happen and raise awareness of the value of access to music making for all children and young people into the future.

It calls for projects, participants, alumni or staff with a great story to share, as well as stories of tutors, staff, volunteers and communities who’ve gone above and beyond and who feel strongly about why music matters.

The feedback will be shared through digital channels and press, in collaboration with marketing agency Material.

To get involved, please email ymi@creativescotland.com with a few lines on the story you’d like to share along with your contact details and someone from the YMI team will give you a call.
