|For two weeks this July, Art in Crisis presents compelling, original projects from Crisis Skylight clients. Their work has been developed as part of our national programme of public events. Together they open a window onto the work of artists experiencing homelessness. Art in Crisis reveals how art can help us all relate to others and seek our place in the world.
19 July – Songs That Shaped Our Lives 7pm
‘Songs That Shaped Our Lives’ is a performance event celebrating what music means to individuals and communities. Music performances, drama, and spoken word from Crisis clients, alongside artists engaged in the wider community, will creatively explore how music brings people together and helps us through the highs and lows of life. What would be the soundtrack to your life?
31 July – Crisis Music Zine Launch 2.30pm
In this intimate gathering, Crisis clients and special guests will discuss music, politics and the songs that have shaped their lives. An invited panel from the Edinburgh music scene will reflect on the music that changed them, and provide a rare chance to delve into their sonic psyches. Live music will punctuate the afternoon, and refreshments will be served.
This event serves as the launch of a new one-off Zine publication created by Crisis’ ‘Songs That Shaped Our Lives’ discussion group.
