Songwriters 4 Climate Action is a project intended to bring together community-based performers through a series of workshops and activities; to help support and inspire them to develop songs and artwork that highlight the challenges and hopes for climate action. Our aim is to work towards live performances and record songs / creative content (to a professional standard) that we can share on multiple platforms to help spread awareness and positivity around this kaupapa. Through this process we hope to build a supportive arts community and learn a thing or two along the way.
Holding Space will be hosting our 11th workshop on 27th October, with a focus on workshopping songs and ideas for recording and video projects for Songwriters 4 Climate Action.
**This workshop has been moved online due to the current Alert Level 3, Step 1. Numbers limited, booking essential**
