Partner organisations

We are excited to have a developing network of over 120 UK and internationally based Future Leaders, having helped them to embrace their art form beyond what they thought was possible. Global Grooves offers ongoing commitment to the development of young individuals wishing to further themselves and their passions.

Throughout the progression and development of this innovative programme, we hope to cultivate and grow relationships with community arts organisations, councils, and arts leaders around the UK. Exploring partnership work and collaboration can only strengthen the excellent national work we are aware of, as well as enable us to further promote the work of those work we haven’t yet discovered.

Some of our key partners to date include:

Art Brasil – North Staffordshire

Bangdrum – Tameside

BeatLife – Liverpool

Cabasa – Tameside

Jack Drum Arts – Durham

Jubacana – Oldham

Juba do Leão – Oldham

Kinetika Bloco – London

SambaYaBamba – Glasgow

SambaYaBamba Youth Street Band – Glasgow

and many more!

Meet some of our Future Leaders enjoying an incredible cultural exchange project, ‘Dodgy Carpet Carnival’ in Glasgow in 2018, alongside members of Banda Alana, Jubacana, Runaway Samba, SambaYaBamba Youth Street Band, Pulse of the Place, and others!

Are you a school, community group, or organisation that values partnership building and collaboration work as much as we do – or perhaps can already name a Future Leader in the making? Please refer these young people to our site…

Testimonials

“The students were so enthusiastic and clearly really talented and committed. I was particularly impressed with the dance student who also came to the ‘Witness’ sharing at Z-Arts. She was so passionate and articulate, and as she’s based in Greater Manchester, I hope we might have the opportunity to support her journey in dance in the future.”

Natalie Davies, Learning & Participation Officer, Company Chameleon

 

“The thing I like about Future Leaders is it’s led by people who’ve been on the same journey as the young people who are taking part in it and are starting on that journey themselves. If we’re gonna give young people a kickstart in getting involved in a career in the arts, I think Future Leaders is a perfect way of doing that.”

Dave Moutrey, CEO, HOME
