The Pioneer Projects team in the Arts Take Part programme run by Amateo are monitoring and showcasing artistic projects that are international, interdisciplinary and experimental.

In June 2019, Hidden Tracks was awarded a grant to deliver a theatre-musical project for young people from different cultures.

Project information

Young people from different countries will look for traditional music and songs that are likely to disappear. Through interviews and meeting different groups of people (older people, folkloric dance or song groups, older family members and others) the young people will collect “old” songs and develop their own interpretation of traditional music through the means of theatre. The cultures will mix, they will find similarities and differences. Through this project the forgotten melodies will be revived in a new way that corresponds to youngsters of today.
