As well as our Citizens Online programme to help equip people and communities with the creative skills of self-expression and community songwriting, we are now running a Monthly Songwriting Hangout over Zoom - every 2nd to last Tuesday of the month. 

Whether you've come to one of our Citizens Online sessions or you're new to the online community, this space is an open and creative space to share your ideas, whether a poem, a thought or a song. 

Each month we'll also invite a guest speaker - whether a musician or someone working within the music profession - to share their experiences of how music has impacted them. 



These sessions run over Zoom every Thursday 1 - 3pm from Thursday 28 January to 25 March 2021. 


The sessions are for anyone who would like to take part, especially those who are seeking sanctuary. If you have children or family at home they can join in too. Click above to learn more and sign up.

We are a Community Interest Company with charitable aims and any revenue we generate is reinvested into our community aims. The work we do aims to: 

  • Enable diverse groups to create original songs rooted in their experiences of their community, through professionally facilitated songwriting workshops.

  • Encourage individuals to participate in the full process of creating music; including writing lyrics, coming up with melodies, performing (and in some cases, recording) their songs.

  • Provide opportunities for individuals from isolated backgrounds to connect with their community through participating in the workshops and performing their songs in public
