Sound Gallery launches 2018 campaign: 'Putting the Record Straight'
Ten years ago, Sound Gallery CIC transformed part of the basement floor of Exeter Phoenix, previously occupied by the Archaeological Field Unit, to a professional recording studio and artist development spaces for aspiring and established musicians.
Music making plays an important part in people's lives. It can help heal injured souls, metaphorically and actually. The opportunity to make music, individually or together helps young people to restore self esteem, realise goals and develop skills. For many this is life changing and life enhancing. Providing this to people who are disadvantaged or at risk means that it has to be heavily subsidised.
The pressure on funding bodies means that every penny has to be fought for, and although Sound Gallery invests income from its commercial work into the CIC, still more is needed; which is where you can come in. Being a Sound Gallery Supporter your contributions will help us continue vital work with young people for whom music represents a major life enhancing opportunity.
