A day of exploring the legacy of protest songs and activism through a series of creative writing exercises, voice work and song-writing with Nina Millns and Natali Shaked. This will start you on the road to writing your own protest song.
Throughout the workshop you will learn the basics of song-writing and explore the theme of activism through creative writing. You will also get a taste of voice work, designed to release any blockages and best deliver the message through your work. The second part of the day will be about beginning to write your song with support from the group and the workshop facilitators with an opportunity to share your work in progress at the end. Musical instruments, your voice and smartphone are all welcome and encouraged, but no musical experience needed.
This event is part of When women gather … a public programme of events connected to Grace Gelder’s photography exhibition at Conway Hall which has been curated with Marianne Mulvey. The exhibition runs from November 9th to January 31st. For more info on the exhibition launch and event programme please click here
We are committed to promoting inclusive practice at Conway Hall. Due to the constraints of our building, the Library is not currently accessible to wheelchair users or those with limited mobility, we are happy to discuss with you how we can make the contents and materials accessible to you. We carefully monitor which events are held in the Library, and will use your comments to enable us to develop ways to ensure that everyone should be able to attend events in the future.
