This is a songwriting project providing activities to guide the writing of lyrics by prisoners which are set to music by a 2makeit Music Maker.

Recordings are then sent into prison for the prisoners to listen to and send to families to maintain vital contacts with loved ones whilst prisoners remain locked in their cells for 23 hours each day without visits, because of the Covid-19 restrictions in prisons.

“It is creative yet simple, but powerful in its concept and outcome. The Songbird project sits perfectly to re-engage a sense of community and ambition whilst contributing towards a positive recovery post pandemic. It allows men to express their artistic creativity and builds confidence.”
(Prison Senior Manager)

“I can’t believe these are my words, I never thought I could ever do anything like this.”
(Project participant)

“I’ve never felt so proud by just having a go at something and not being scared, thank you for believing in me.”
(Project participant)
