La Banda de Musica

Our mission is to keep the children away from the dangers of the streets. La Banda de Musica helps underprivileged populations in a marginalised neighbourhood of Zaachila Oaxaca, south of Mexico, mainly by providing children with access to cultural activities and in particular to musical education. The goal is to help promote an original form of education, which includes social advancement, strengthening of ties , and a reduction of violence. To achieve this goal, we organize gifts of musical instruments. We raise funds to continue building the music school and pay the salaries of the local music teachers. We dispatch expert musicians or luthiers on site to teach and inspire students.. This exchange of skills will offer projects of lasting autonomy. The association is helping set up repair workshops for musical instruments, and needs tools to assist in the training of young people who can study music and repair their instruments as well. We also offer scholarships to young musicians who demonstrate an ability to study and wish to continue learning music at a university level. A symphony orchestra has been created and is the pride of the neighbourhood THE SANTA CECILIA ORCHESTRA. For the group of children involved, music means cohesion, education and hope.

ALL ACCESS MUSIQUE

In December 2020, French record companies decided to structure all their joint initiatives in favour of gender equality, equal opportunities, inclusion in general and ethics into an "All Access - Music" association. The founding objective is to accelerate the necessary changes within the music industry, whether in terms of equality or diversity. The All Access Musique association is chaired by Natacha Krantz, Universal Music's Communications Director; it is administered by a board elected for two years and membership is open to any Company or organisation that shares its ambitions and wishes to contribute to its work. The board is made up of 8 representatives of record labels - both independent and major - 4 women and 4 men. The masterclasses of the All Access mentoring programme, which were introduced in January 2020, following the first Women in Music conference, were thus hosted by an organisation dedicated to - the development of actions in the direction of parity - the implementation of support measures for young people who are destined for the music industry. On the subject of professional equality: The first stone in the edifice that the producers wished to build to improve the place and visibility of women in their companies, the mentoring programme has been enriched, in addition to the monthly sessions based on the principle of role models, transmission and networking, with individual coaching sessions thanks to the partnership established with the Audiens group for 3 years. Practical workshops, meetings with other groups of mentees and speeches by the association (MaMA 2021, Forum Generation Egalite, Assises de la Parite, etc.) have taken place over the past two years. 50 young women are now taking part in the third season of the All Access mentoring program; they come from all professions and from structures of all sizes. The founding roadmap remains the guiding principle of this program: to move the lines in favour of women by offering employees at the beginning of their careers specific support to help them in their development thanks to an unprecedented experience: - Regular exchanges with emblematic women professionals on all subjects, - Share freely their daily concerns as well as their ambitions, - Develop their network by building privileged relationships with their peers but also with experienced women, - Have a space to listen and develop their self-confidence. In 2021, thanks to the support of the Centre National de la Musique, the association was able to set up dedicated accounts on social networks, and to communicate regularly on the activities of All Access. The participants in the mentoring programme also benefited from a communication kit (personal photos taken by a professional photographer, training sessions to optimise LinkedIn profiles, etc.). On the subject of equal opportunities: The music producers united in the All Access Musique association are also driven by a clear ambition on the issues of equal opportunities, diversity and inclusion. The first line of development chosen to provide a concrete response in this area is that of helping students in financial difficulty, but who are nonetheless passionate about the music business; this corresponds to the desire to help young talent to become professional and join the teams of labels and partners in the recorded music sector. In this context and to help us identify needs with the help of specialists in the field, a partnership has been established with the Institut de l'Engagement. The awarding of scholarships to eligible students in the music industry master's programme is managed by the "Equal Opportunities Committee" of our association. The first school associated with this programme is EMIC; other masters are being considered for the next integration sessions (the EDH group with ICART in particular).

Ora Singers

ORA Singers is an award-winning and critically-acclaimed professional vocal ensemble, recognised for its commitment to producing the highest quality choral music; continuing and enhancing the centuries-long tradition of choral singing in England. We do this primarily through performance, recording, commissioning and choral education. We believe that choral singing is truly at the heart of Britain's classical music tradition, and we are committed to showcasing its beauty, power and relevance to a modern and demographically varied audience. Building on our success of the last six years, we are developing a new vision of cross-cultural work that we believe will introduce British choral singing to a wider audience than ever before, both nationally and internationally. We will be collaborating with, and commissioning, extraordinary artists from other world music traditions, building musical bridges between different cultures. We are also continuing to expand our educational programme, which reaches out to under-privileged young people across the UK. We provide free mentoring and access to professional musicians and musical opportunities to aspiring composers from state schools. We were inspired to build this programme by the continual reduction of support for music education in our state education sector, and the knock-on effect this is having on young people's musical development and aspirations. We have always supported the creation of new work, commissioning over 50 new musical pieces in the last six years, and with a target of 100 new works in 10 years. We have become known for our creative and prolific commissioning programme, providing employment and exposure to a huge number of composers, and building a legacy of early 21st century choral music which will continue to be performed for hundreds of years to come.

Association Source Vive

Source Vive's mission is to bring support to families and relatives of children suffering leukemia and cancers in the greater Paris North area, at any stage of their disease. (each year, 2000 to 2500 children are declaring cancer or leucemia in France) Support consists of psychologist assistance (2 professionals), art-therapy sessions (1 professional), sport-health (1 professional) sessions and various activities (21 volunteers) such as gardening, cooking and games plays. All this is held in a dedicated 400 sqm+ location in the city of L'Isle Adam (North of Paris). The support is given in complement of and in coordination with the one local hospitals may be providing to the children and their families depending on the stage or importance of treatment. Hospitals may also call Source Vive directly for their support. Source Vive is as such supporting 75 families a year through a personalized and dedicated approach. This is a non-profit support; no financial participation is asked to families; this is free of charge and all financial resources come either from local and national subsidies or private donations. There is no limitation in time to the support provided to families (support length is average 3 years). The Source Vive location is mainly open on week-ends but many additional activities are created along the year to make sure children and families can benefit from a warm and dedicated attention through several experiences ( leisure park visits, horse riding, Christmas spectacle, etc...). Source Vive is also deeply developing in the support they can bring in the scholastic education of children who cannot go to school anymore due to treatments. They bring the support in coordination with local schools and can either bring the support in hospitals or at home for children where needed. Source Vive is also working closely with local other communities to make sure they can maximize synergies and join forces (sport associations, artistical associations, etc...). The association was founded in 1989 by Mrs Sylvie Brechenade who had to manage herself the leukemia of her 3 months children; she realized a lack of psychological support and excha,ge platform at that time and decided to create Source Vice as soon as her child had luckily recovered from the disease. 33 years after, she is still leading the way in the association, while making sure people will be ready to take over her action when time is needed.
