Music as Social Innovation is a new collaboration between the University of Edinburgh and Limelight Music, whose work primarily centres on creating employment opportunities through music for disabled musicians. This current partnership provides access to innovative music activities for disadvantaged groups to create a catalyst for change. The project is also focused on assessing the social impact of this work and is funded by the Scottish Government Social Innovation Fund.

Join us on the 25th of January for a thrilling performance of new music and talks discussing the importance of music in our lives.
