We are excited to announce that on Feb 1 at 5pm, Founders Anna Mac and Alyson Frazier will contribute as panellists for Somerville College University of Oxford's discussion on child refugees and the power of education.
The evening will begin with a talk by Lord Alf Dubs, campaigner for refugee rights, and follow with a panel discussion hosted by:
Alyson Frazier and Anna MacDonald (Play for Progress)
Beth Gardiner-Smith (Safe Passage UK)
Tajmeet Gorwarah & Ishmael (students)
Bob Price (Oxford City Council)
Emma Reece (UNICEF UK Government Relations Adviser)
Alyson and Anna are determined to enroll even more allies in our support of young refugees, learn more about what our colleagues are doing and see what we can do to help them, and add to the positive dialogue that will ensure that creative/music education and therapies are better harnessed to combat isolation and build communities for vulnerable young people.

Given how high we are still flying, it's hard to believe that it was one week ago today already that we performed centre stage at the Southbank Centre Clore Ballroom as part of 'A Child of Our Time' Fundraising Gala for the Refugee Council Children's Section with Hilary Hahn, Ed Gardner, London Philharmonic Orchestra London Philharmonic Choir and more!
These photos from the day (taken by Andrew J McCoy), are mid-concert snaps of our tutors, so just imagine the smiles on the KIDS faces! As usual, in the effort to protect their identities, we sadly can't share their cheshire cat grins with you, but trust us, they blow even these beautiful faces out of the water.
Please help us expand and be able to enroll more children in our programme! www.justgiving.com/playforprogress
