The Pioneer Projects team in the Arts Take Part programme run by Amateo would like to monitor and showcase artistic projects that are international, interdisciplinary and experimental.

In June 2019, FanfaKids X Brassbandschool was awarded a grant to deliver a drumming performance.

Project information

The project will organise an exchange between Fanfakids in Belgium and Brassbandschool in the Netherlands. Although there are similarities between the groups (located in the poorer area of their city, working with diverse groups, using peer-to-peer learning), there is also a lot to learn from each other, such as different music styles, different cultural backgrounds, different performing and learning methods. For the young participants exchanging with their peers from other countries it will be very valuable, as most of them don’t get many chance to travel (and sometimes never leave their own neighbourhood). Teachers and organisations will also exchange ways of working, methods and drumming styles.
