Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report that set out future options for the development of the York Music Hub and York Arts Education, which together plan for and provide music opportunities for children and young people in York.

 

Officers stated that the proposals contained in the report were intended to build on the success of the current service and would enable York Arts Education (YAE) to become a social enterprise by forming a Community Interest Company (CIC) and to diversify its sources of funding. 

 

The Executive Member paid tribute to the improvements that had been made to the service and stated that he recognised the importance of music and its benefits for children and young people.

 

At the request of the Executive Member, officers gave details of the Community Interest Company models that could be established. The Executive Member requested that clarification be sought as to whether a decision to set up the Arts Education Service as a CIC would require approval by the Executive in view of the TUPE implications.

 

The Executive Member gave consideration to the following options:

·        With respect to the Hub, to decide whether to participate with the other strategic partners in developing a new legal entity.

·        With respect to York Arts Education, to decide whether to ask officers to investigate the potential for York Arts Education to spin out into a Community Interest Company (CIC) or whether to retain it as a Council service.

 

Resolved:  (i)      That the Council continue to participate in York

Music Hub under the new arrangements proposed in the report.

 

                   (ii)      That officers investigate the potential for the York

Arts Education Service to spin-out as a company and bring back a report with a business plan to the Executive Member (or Executive as appropriate).

 

Reason:              To support the continued development of excellent music opportunities for children and young people in York.
