Over the years BCMG has engaged not only with children but also with their families. Much of this work has been done in collaboration with Ikon Gallery, in particular with artist Emma Bowen who was Ikon’s Learning Coordinator at the time of some of the projects, and as part of the Birmingham City Council’s Arts Champions scheme.

Some photos are also from the activity cafés which accompany our family concerts. Here, children and their parents and carers are encouraged to enjoy hands on exploration of the music from the concerts together.

If you want to support our work and ensure we can continue working with families and communities for more years to come, please donate £20 towards our #20for20 campaign
