Who we are

CPD Programme

Love Music Festival delivered two tailored CPD programmes for music leaders covering a wide range of creative skills. Catriona Watt and Lillias Kinsman-Blake joined the team as our Creative Assistants from August to November 2010 and worked side by side with the Love Music Festival animateurs and Artistic Director. During this time the Creative Assistants developed their own skills and confidence in delivering specialist music-making activities for young people, and are still helping to embed the impact of the festival into their local area.

The majority of the programme was spent in a hands-on capacity working directly with school pupils in workshops, as well as helping at the venues during the festival itself. There were opportunities to develop planning, pedagogic and evaluation knowledge as they worked closely with the Artistic Director and his team. This programme was funded by Creative Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative and supported by Scottish Borders Council, Eastgate Theatre, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and An Lanntair.
