About the Event
Creative Minds in Song, a ground-breaking social project pioneered by Song in the City, explores the deep link between mental illness and creativity.
Bringing together writers from MIND in Tower Hamlets and Newham with postgraduate students from the Guildhall School, the project inspires the co-creation of brand-new songs over a series of workshops, written by those with lived experience of mental illness in collaboration with Guildhall School composers, pianists and singers.
Through poetry and music, the project gives the experience of those who have suffered from mental illness a creative life. This world premiere performance will feature the new songs and will tell the story of the project and its participants through words and music.
