Woke Songs: A Work In Progress’
Woke Songs is a project drawing on experiences of the South West’s queer youth and its rich heritage of folk music to create a new canon of songs and ultimately a musical, relevant to the narratives of young people living today. This verbatim performance piece will be a vibrant and valid celebration of queer existence formed from the true testimony of the participants.
Mich Sanderson and Ryan Wilce are the recipients of the SHIFT Development Fund 2021. This fund was created as part of the SHIFT programme designed to amplify young voices through the arts, led by and for young people. This Sharing is a culmination of a period of research and development with groups of young people in Salisbury and surrounding areas. Wiltshire Creative is delighted to have supported this project in its early stages and invites you to come and see this exciting new piece of work, rooted in our region.
