PolyRhythm, the free musical instrument library based in Bodmin has just received funding from The National Lottery Community Fund / Climate Action Fund to enable them to make instruments from waste and junk items. Open community workshops will enable people to create and make instruments that will be taken and used at events and festivals over the next 12 months and beyond.
Together for our Planet is part of National Lottery community fund portfolio aimed to support communities across the UK to take action on climate change. It has been created to engage people with COP26 and inspire positive climate action in communities across the UK.
Polyrhythm will be starting to build instruments from waste from November and will be taking them to events and festivals across the SW next year. The project will enable the community to be involved from the start and if you would like to be involved with making or playing junk instruments then email email@example.com where you can find out more about the project and workshops.
They will be teaming up with a few other organisations and hope run an event in Bodmin next year that will be aimed at reimagining waste and what we do with it. PolyRhythm will also be taking a tour with the instruments and will be found at Pandafest and The Great Estate Festival amongst others. If you would like to invite us to you event or would like to come and join in making some noise over climate then get in touch.
