Celebrating generations coming together with exploring sound and playing amongst the beauty that nature has to offer.
Brighton based music duo, Unite The Beat and Bee in the Woods Forest School join together in hope breaking the divide between the elderly and the young, through the love of sound and nature.
The campaign is to help elders who face social isolation in their daily life, in the hope of improving their life in the local area. The project will run for 7 months, working with the socially isolated identified by the charity, Time to Talk Befriending.
They will be working with a group of pre-schoolers in a monthly workshop, playing together and creating sounds of nature as the seasons change over the coming months.
The outcome will be a short documentary and music video at the end of it. The final screening will in hope bring these relationships together, and hopefully bloom into the future.
A generous grant from Upstream Ideas of £2,000, raising half of the budget, however there still needs to be money raised to help fund the organisation campaign. To find out more about the campaign and how to donate, can be found here: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/spring-into-sound
Co-Founder of Unite The Beat, Emily says ‘We believe passionately in the benefits of getting people out into nature and find that using sound is a great way to immerse them in their environment and relationships.’
The aim is to bring varying generations together, to help combat social isolation.
