Songwriting for wellbeing 2.0

New paid opportunity for songwriters and composers to join our team to create music to be used as an aid for remembering wellbeing coping mechanisms and mental health tools.

We are looking for 10 musicians who will be commissioned to each write a piece of music on wellbeing topics.

Click here to see the music videos on wellbeing we made previously.

They will be supported throughout by a professional songwriter (TO BE ANNOUNCED). Their final piece will be filmed & recorded professionally, and they will perform live in Elysium Art Gallery Swansea on the 30th of September.

We are looking for 25 year olds or younger who will benefit from a professionally made video which could act as a ‘show reel’ of their work to help showcase their talent, a network of peers to support them.

We would like to encourage applications from early-career musicians who have not had professional work before. 

All music genres are welcome to apply, though lyrics are an essential part of the composition.

We will be paying £300 for the new music, recording and performance.

Once recorded the videos will be used as a tool to help everyone learn valuable wellbeing skills. It will be widely shared with communities, schools and universities with which we regularly work.

You may apply as an individual or a group but please note there is no additional fee for multiple persons.

To be eligible to apply for this opportunity you must be:

  • Living/working in Wales
  • under or at the age of 25 years old
  • Looking to start/grow a career in music
  • Available on the 13th of July(Zoom -7pm), 27th July(Zoom -7pm), 17th August(Zoom -7pm) 6th or 7th of September (all day), 30th September(5pm onwards)
