Other information

Please note this event will not be recorded. We kindly ask for your cameras to be turned on when joining and remain on throughout the training. We'll be sharing consented footage of children and therefore need to know that you are a genuine attender. As this is also a practical workshop, our presenters also need to be able to see you and interact with you. 

All those who attend will receive a copy of the powerpoint presentation with links to resources.

This is the fourth in a series of training events launching SoundWaves Network SW across the South West region.  This event is primarily for people working or studying within Devon, Torbay and Plymouth area UK however all are welcome to attend. Please note therefore the content of the training will be similar to the three previous launch events for Plymouth, Somerset and Cornwall communities.


Bookings close Friday 23 September at 9am. Please note we cannot accept late bookings.

Please make sure your zoom username matches the name your ticket is booked on. This will help us identify you in the waiting room. 

Take Art is able to offer this training event at a subsidised cost of £7 per person due to project funding by Youth Music.
