StagePass is a project aimed at tapping into the creativity and growing and polishing the skillset of young people who are interested in music but sometimes feel a bit disconnected from their peers. We want to help them to connect, record, play together and perform together for us all to enjoy. Using digital connections, for now because of COVID-19, and building capacity and the ‘virtual’ infrastructure as a digital readiness element, StagePass will be a space where they will participate, grow their confidence and share in intercultural learning.
StagePass is targeting – teens who are in education – they are predominantly tuned out from their peers but tuned into the sound of music. StagePass wants to mitigate against the risk of isolation and feelings of disconnect. The project offers a chance to shine a spotlight on positive mental health and well-being and taking it forward as they connect and reconnect. We will use synergies between entrepreneurship education and the ‘Gig economy’ in creative arts to develop a curriculum relevant to our target audience. IDP are leading on this ErasmusPlus project along with partners from Ireland, Netherlands, Northern Ireland/UK, Poland. Starting in May 2021, StagePass will run to May 2023.
