Paragon is an inclusive music company inspiring people to create and perform their own music. We are passionate about using music and the arts to raise people’s aspirations, promoting positive self-image, teamwork, communication and learning. Excitingly they’ve just been shortlisted in the People’s Projects Awards and are in with the chance of winning up to £50,000!
The decision is being put to the public vote, so they need your help to make this project possible!
The funding will be used to develop a youth mentoring project called “Stride”, which will give young people the opportunity to develop their skills in music and dance through workshop, performance, recording, training and work placement opportunities. This will help to increase access to education and employment for people with disabilities in Scotland.
You can watch their short video on the People’s Projects website and vote online. Vote once per email address and they ask that your family and friends to do the same! Please also remember to validate your vote by clicking on the confirmation email (which may have gone into your junk mail).
