Young people with Autism

Songlines

For the past ten years we have worked alongside young people with Autism to explore music, drama and visual art.

Through a partnership with Jessie’s Fund, young people will be taking part in weekly creative workshops from 27th April until 15th June 2019.

The project aims to create a series of musical tracks and pieces of artwork which will be shared with friends and family in June 2019. The pieces of music and art will tell a story decided by the young people.

Sessions are taking place from 11.30 – 13.30 at Limelight Community Hub in Old Trafford, which is a friendly venue suitable for families with a range of other services such as a nursery, library and a cafe.

Carnage of the Animals: Taster Session

We held a taster session for ‘Songlines’ in September. The theme was ‘Carnival of the Animals’ where participants created their own imaginary animals which were depicted in drawings and collages, and then composed theme songs for their creations.

The artwork from the session was made into animations and was shown during the performance of Saint Saens’ Carnival of the Animals by Manchester Camerata on 4th October 2018 at the Stoller Hall.

Watch the video to see the fantastic story they’ve created!
