safe & enabling spaces
EOTO works with young people who have a cruel relationship with failure. They are punished for it and the consequences are hefty. Co-creating the space for change and fostering innovation, for EOTO looks like providing the space for children to fail safely. In music, failure happens to be part of learning, and learning is part of experimenting, it's just that experimenting in music is fun, which makes failure, viewed through this particular lens, also fun.
The EOTO music programme was co designed to focus on the discovery of music and self-expression, through failure, offering pupils the opportunity to express their feelings in a non-academic environment whilst simultaneously developing their creative talents. An educational Trojan Horse.
