Music and social media to take students around the world in 14 days

Around the world 14 days

Three Trinity Laban students are on a mission to take music around the world in 14 days without any money but relying on the power of social media and the web.

Elliot Lyte, Max de Lucia and Sophie English (l-r) will head off on 9 February to Lisbon, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney and the Big Apple, bringing people across the world together through music.

The project is part of CoLab, Trinity Laban's unique two week programme of music and dance collaborative projects which are devised and run by the students themselves.

Max said: "The three of us are coming to the end of our degrees at Trinity Laban and saw CoLab as an opportunity to think big. When we launched the campaign site in December 2013, we had no idea what would happen - but the response so far has been phenomenal.

"Tens of thousands of people from across the world have checked out the project, and many have written in inviting us to stay with them. In return for the hospitality, we will bring music into homes and communities worldwide, putting those local people at the heart of the music that we will make."

The project is supported by STA, and has already attracted the attention of Stephen Fry and the Huffington Post.
