YAM Sweden - Programme for 2018/19

An exciting YAM Sweden programme for the season 2018/19!
28 Sep, 2017

YAM (Young Audiences Music) Sweden is a network of producers from all over Sweden working with live music production for children and youth. The network is part of JM Sweden (Jeunesses Musicales Sweden) and is a national subsidiary of JM International’s YAM program (www.yamspace.org). Its aim is to strengthen, promote and develop the regional music scene for young audiences in Sweden.

During the Summer, the members of YAM Sweden have been working hard to put together an exciting selection of YAM activities for both children and producers. We are proud to present some of them below, and more will come soon!

  • Provide its members with a updated national and international overview of the field of live music for young audiences
  • Share knowledge, skills and experiences and prevent members from “reinventing the wheel”
  • Draw attention to and spread knowledge about the producer’s role within music for young audiences
