We are proud to present the full film made of our Songwriting with the Hackney Elders as part of our 2020 Collaborate and Cross Pollinate conference. Thanks to everyone involved, the writers, the elders, the coaches, the volunteers, the film makers and especially those who helped fund the film.
As part of the 2020 Collaborate and Cross Pollinate conference theme we held a very special inter-generational songwriting workshop with six AMA-UK members and 5 older residents of Hackney with songwriter coaches Fiona Bevan and Maz O'Connor. Thanks to Cecil Sharp House and Hackney Council for partnering with us on this project. Songwriting with Hackney Elders is a workshop idea conceived by Stevie Freeman, CEO of The Americana Music Association UK
