welcome to the London Ukulele Project
We are delighted to be currently working with:
The London Ukulele Project was founded in December 2018. Starting off with a Mass Christmas Busk we had over 60 ukulele players from all over London come together to play songs to commuters in Waterloo Station, all whilst raising money for charities. In 2019 we doubled our number to 122! This has fast become a favourite date on our calendar and we were delighted to be able to host it again 2022 after a Covid gap.
Thanks to a kickstart from the National Lottery in 2019 we have donated over 300 ukuleles across London to schools, community groups and libraries. Fast forward to 2023 we are looking for other teachers and group leaders to help build more classes across London and are super excited to have our first teacher, Oscar, start classes in Waltham Forest.
We have big dreams to one day host a Ukulele Proms at the Albert Hall AND to have ukuleles in every London Library
We are an Arts Award Centre
What is an Arts Award?
A range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 years old to grow as artists and arts leaders. In England, Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London and Arts Council England.
What do you currently offer?
We can support children and young people to work towards their Discover and/or Explore Awards. Children and young people collect evidence in an individual arts log of their experiences of participating in arts activites, researching artists and/or arts organisations and their work, sharing their arts discoveries, creating a piece of art work and identifying what they have enjoyed and/or acheived and their communication of this to others. If we can support your school, your student or organisation in working towards an Arts Award please get in touch for more information
