Thanks to the support of the Mayfield Trust, in June UYMP hosted a meeting of 20 composers who are based in the Yorkshire region.  Peter Wiegold was an inspiring facilitator and the meeting generated lots of ideas for dealing with the isolation composers can experience once they leave formal education.  The composers present decided to form a Co-operative and UYMP is proud to have initiated it and be supporting it. 

UYMP will be putting their ideas into practice as we increase our support for composers who are in early- or mid-career.  Links have been established between UYMP, Late Music York and Platform 4 in Sheffield.  Watch this space for further updates!
