In 2017 we brought communities together across the UK in partnership workshops linked to a collaborative concert at the Union Chapel on TUESDAY THE 25TH of JULY.


Workshop Partnerships connected diverse communities across the country, enhancing cohesion and developing collaborative and communicative skills through music. Solo artists included Thomas Gould, Bernhard Schimpelsberger, Jonathan Hoard, Palisander, Ahmed Muhktar and Saida Tani, with 400 singers coming from the partnership workshops.



Mission Statement


Common and Kind works to enhance community cohesion using multidisciplinary musical collaboration. We bring together diverse, divided and segregated communities: marginalised and privileged, young and old, international musical stars and complete beginners, in collaborative workshops and concerts. While comparable organisations might target a specific age group, demographic, level of ability or musical style, we bring together all ages, backgrounds, levels and styles, creating truly far-reaching and profound collaborations. Workshop participants, guest artists and audiences are all exposed to an extremely diverse range of musical styles which act as a potent model for cohesion, communication and integration.
