Movingsounds is a community of professional facilitators passionate about the power of creativity to transform lives. As musicians, artists and film-makers we run experiential, dynamic workshops to inspire and educate.
We live in exciting times and we must empower ourselves to create the world we want. Our workshops offer a chance to explore important issues of sustainability, social justice, leadership, creativity, and nature connection through a fun engaging process that brings out the best in ourselves and each other.

Schools and Colleges
We have worked with countless schools all across Britain over the years including every Secondary School and nearly every Primary School in Brighton, every Secondary school on the Isle of Man and schools as far apart as The Isle of Eigg Primary school on the west coast of Scotland to Tideways School in Newhaven and so many in between.
“Having you guys in school to do the performances and workshop was such a positive experience! All the feedback from students and staff has been what a great job you all do at sending out an important message.” Debs Shah-Smith, Uckfield Community Technology College
“Heart-warming, soul-nourishing; what a joy to receive such a thoughtful and challenging experience- with the gentle encouragement we all need if we are to keep moving and learning.” Lizzie Overton. Headteacher, Lewes New School.
This book is a toolbox of arts based environmental education activities with 48 pages of games and workshops that we have developed over the years. Both playful and profound, it is great for anyone wanting to facilitate positive change or just have creative fun with groups of people. Forward by Rob Hopkins of the Transition Towns Network.

Ed Wade-Martins, co-founder of Movingsounds recently cycled 10,000 km from his home in Sussex to Mali in West Africa with just a guitar, a video camera and an open heart. This was a fossil fuel free journey of radical re-empowerment that inspired Substantial Films and the Visions Channel to follow his experience and create this incredible documentary film.
