Citizen Songwriters is a social enterprise based in North East of England that brings people together through community songwriting workshops and performances. Citizen Songwriters aims to strengthen communities, support people who are socially isolated, break down barriers and enable individuals to discover their story and participate in the cultural life of their community.
Citizen Songwriters empowers individuals to participate in storytelling, writing lyrics and creating music to share the story of the people and places where they live.
Citizen Songwriters believes everyone is inherently creative and encourages people to explore their creative imagination, regardless of musical experience.
Citizen Songwriters actively encourages people who have been marginalised from participating in the arts and seeks to create new cultural stories about the rich diversity of British society.
