The SONG Project

The SONG Project

The SONG Project introduces Songwriting to women who have been marginalized by poverty, homelessness, violence, or trauma, as a tool for empowering them to tell their stories of oppression, resilience and hope in a creative and transformative way. Often, formal music education is not accessible to women who are poor, homeless, or otherwise marginalized, yet music and songs play an influential role in many of their lives. People find songs that they connect with, and carry them through the day as companions, filling the individual with a sense of a wider community that she is connected to and supported by.
