Dublin Arts and Human Rights Festival 2020: Song Writing Workshops

Fighting Words is delighted to be part of the Dublin Arts and Human Rights Festival, hosted by Smashing Times and Front Line Defenders.

Songs and music have played a powerful role in human rights movements, giving a universal voice, crossing barriers and promoting unity and equality.

At these three workshops we will look at the history of these songs, and draw on these themes to create our own songs relevant for today's generation. The workshops will culminate in a performance at Fighting Words on Saturday 24th October 2020. Participants need to be available to attend all three workshops. The final workshop will take place according to Government Covid-19 guidelines and best practice. Workshops may be moved online if necessary.

No previous songwriting experience is required. However, feel free to bring along any instruments or lyrical ideas you might have!
