We are delighted that Liverpool John Moore University is back as our Sound City’s official Cultural Education Partner. This partnership has allowed students to develop their skills, enhance their learning and further their experience in a live festival environment. This partnership along with other leading arts organisations is a key feature of our unique offer to students, reflecting our mission to offer a world-class education that enables students to experience the transformative effect of art and culture in all its forms. Some of the ways LJMU worked with us last year were:

Entrepreneurship Challenge
The Entrepreneurship Challenge run by the University’s Centre of Entrepreneurship, will enable students to pitch their business ideas to a panel, win funding and promote their idea at Sound City 2019. https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/business/centre-for-entrepreneurship

Film Production Team
Liverpool John Moore’s Film Production Team, are made up of students from courses such BA Journalism, BA Media Production and BA Film Studies. Students are given the opportunity to apply and work within a professional environment as a paid intern. They work to a live production schedule, which enables students to improve their organising and team building skills. Through filming, photography, editing and journalism, they build their portfolios of work, which get used as promotional material for Sound City and LJMU. Sound City also provides students with opportunities and contacts to get their work published.

LJMU 2021 involvement will be announced soon ......
