Musical Passage is a collaborative project initiated by Radical Ecology in Plymouth and aims to support the long-term development of a cohesive infrastructure for anti-racist jazz education across Devon and Cornwall. Drawing on Tomorrow’s Warriors expertise as the UK’s leading provider of free-at-the-point-of-delivery jazz education for young people, Radical Ecology is working with partners across Devon and Cornwall to identify a network of music teachers across the region.
This event is part of Open City – a season of decolonial art and public programming inviting artists, activists and thinkers from across south-west England to listen, walk and dream together exploring the essential role of inclusive civic spaces in creating just and sustainable planetary futures.
