Workshop Feedback

“Thank you for helping me get out of my skin.”

“This was like trying to notate feelings, rather than theory”

“I found it useful to let go of perfect chord progressions and focus on the bit that’s inspiring – writing songs”

Dudley Days

Dudley Days – with John Edgar (Storyteller) and Dan Whitehouse (Musician).

A new arts project exploring Dudley’s past, present and future.

Participants across generations are invited to share stories, memories, and dreams for the future of Dudley – crystallising them in song, and documenting the creative process on film.

The Dudley Days project begins with three creative workshops in the heart of the borough where participants will write and record three new original songs inspired by Dudley landmarks and their own experiences of living in the town. An exciting opportunity to discover more about Dudley’s rich heritage and improve well-being through creativity and songwriting.

Details on how to take part will be announced soon.
