Outreach Director Laura wins Global prize

Pro Corda’s Director of Outreach and Schools, Laura Feeney, has just been awarded the Hildegard Behrens Foundation Global Humanitarianism Entrepreneurship Prize upon graduating from the Global Leaders Program.

During the nine-month Executive Graduate Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship, Cultural Agency, Teaching Artistry, Civic Leadership, and Organizational Management Laura developed skills to enable her to write a business plan for a SEND music professional development programme.

Laura undertook fieldwork assignments in Chile, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Suriname where she worked with local non-government organisation music programmes. During these placements she taught local students, trained local teachers, analysed business structures, developed new programmes and raised awareness of SEND music through lectures and workshops delivered in each location. Laura also gave a SEND music workshop at the Youth Orchestra of LA National Symposium in July.

The Pro Corda SEND Music professional training will be launching in 2020 as a new development programme within our Outreach delivery to empower school staff to deliver specialist training in SEND schools throughout each term and at the heart of curriculum.

Inspired by the humanistic legacy of legendary 20th Century dramatic soprano Hildegard Behrens (1937-2009), the annual Hildegard Behrens Foundation Global Humanitarian Entrepreneur Prize recognizes the merit of distinguished Social Enterprise initiatives that take an innovative approach to harnessing the power of music to add value to their communities.
