Partners

Voices Now is delighted to work alongside some key partners without whom Voices Now would not be as special as it is.

Roundhouse

  • The legendary London venue dedicated to nurturing creative young talent and presenting the best in live music, theatre, circus and spoken word.
  • From modest Victorian beginnings – beginning life in 1846 as a steam-engine repair shed – to legendary cultural venue, the Roundhouse has an enviable heritage. The Grade II* listed building is now home to a bold and exciting programme of live music, theatre, dance, circus, installations and new media.
  • Young people are at the heart of everything at the Roundhouse. They’re on the board and help plan and perform at events. Roundhouse offers a year-round schedule of creative projects for 11–25 year olds in 24 state-of-the-art studios, where facilities include TV, radio and music production, media suites and rehearsal rooms for music and performance.

    It’s the interaction between artists on stage and 11–25s that makes the Roundhouse unique. Young people have interviewed Paul McCartney for Roundhouse Radio, filmed a documentary on NoFit State circus, and worked with Apple to deliver live streaming of events.

    The Roundhouse is a charity and it can’t survive on ticket sales alone. Income generated from private/corporate hire and from generous individuals, trusts, corporate sponsors and public funders helps Roundhouse to raise the £3m needed each year towards the artistic programme and work with young people.

Making Music

Making Music is the UK’s number one organisation for voluntary music, they thrive on encouraging all kinds of music groups and individuals to be part of a vibrant multi-cultural music scene.

Their members – 3,000 and growing – join Making Music for the expert help they need to set up, run and develop music groups in their communities.

 

The SHM Foundation

The SHM Foundation works globally to bring about positive social change through projects in the areas of learning and citizenship, health and the arts.

The Foundation aims to provide communities and individuals with the practical tools they need to develop innovative solutions. It uses knowledge from the humanities and social sciences to understand human motivation, and draws on academic disciplines, from philosophy to anthropology, to address social challenges.

The Foundation believes in the importance of working in partnership. It uses its resources and financing to forge new alliances which, in turn, attract the resources and financing of other organisations. The Foundation uses these partnerships to empower groups of people to bring about economic and social transformation.

The SHM Foundation actively seeks partnership with those who share its aims.

The Foundation was set up in November 2008 by Professor Maurice Biriotti and Professor Henrietta Moore, who co-founded the strategy and insight consultancy SHM Productions, based in central London, in 1996.
