March 24, 2015 •• Music Bridge
Songwriting for Self Awareness

In February, music therapist Lucia McGinnis led a workshop at Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin on the use of music in therapeutic work with adults with addictions. Her workshop is part of a series of supplementary trainings for our Music Bridge project in Northern Ireland. As a precursor to her involvement with the Music Bridge program, Lucia was an event organizer and workshop presenter for Singing the Bridge, a community music and music therapy festival in Derry-Londonderry in 2013 that was jointly organized by Musicians without Borders and Cultúrlann.

During Lucia’s presentation, the Music Bridge trainees explored songwriting as a tool for promoting self-expression and self-awareness. As an outcome, the trainees created and performed their own songs for each other, drawing upon their personal experiences with the Music Bridge course.

We will be back in Northern Ireland this week for the third intensive training period and look forward to hearing their songs!
