Songs of Freedom Press Feature
“A powerful protest song’s project giving young people a voice performing live at the Freedom Festival. In a bold creative fight-back against government cuts and youth poverty – the Warren Young People’s Project is building on the success of the pilot initiative to deliver Songs of Freedom 2. Working alongside skilled musicians and songwriters, the Project will support 16-25 year-olds to develop their vocal and performance skills through dynamic accredited song writing workshops which will lead to a live performance opportunity at the Freedom Festival.
In a bid to give young people a creative voice of expression, Songs of Freedom 2 aims to help young people vent their frustrations and channel anger in a powerfully positive way. Musician and song writers Lou Duffy-Howard and Ysabelle Wombwell; MC and song writer REDEYE and producer Liam Van Rijn will be on hand throughout the 4-day project to offer encouragement and professional guidance to aspiring young song writers. Can Do Learning Activist Heidi-Victoria Ireland and Kate Murphy will be on hand to offer additional support.”
