Oblique Arts Charity no 1142653 run a creative two hour songwriting and guitar workshop at the Edge Café' Mill Rd Cambridge, led by Simon Buchan and Chris Free. Channelling creative energies (words/music/ideas) into a collaborative 3 mins of life enhancing music/spoken word/singing for all comers & beginners.
We have recorded 5 songs created in our community songwriting and guitar workshop at Bluebarn Studios Little Downham and have had them mixed by producer Andy Lewis.
We are asking for donations to create a 'Songs From The Edge Café' CD with 8 page booklet that will feature Art and poetry from the Oblique Arts art & music workshops. You can make a real difference by supporting and donating today to Oblique Arts.
We will use the money raised for mastering of the songs recorded for the 'Songs From The Edge Café' CD and for the accompanying 8 page art & poetry booklet production.
We believe passionately in the positive energy and wellbeing qualities music and art can bring to all people and especially those who feel isolated in the community. A CD and booklet would go a long way in publicising the great work done in these workshops. It would also of course bring great joy to the participants.
You would get your name printed in the booklet as being a sponsor of this life enhancing project, unless of course you don't want your name printed.
We offer an online community as part of the project, enabling the sharing of music art and peer support. This is really important: often there is daily engagement. It allows participants to cope with difficult times and to support one another. Our group members are able to maintain a creative/social network of peers, feeling valued and enabling well-being and benefits in the rest of their lives. Peers and support teams have noted a marked difference in daily interactions, mood, decision-making, and clarity of speech, over the course of the project period. Some see what they are capable of achieving individually and within a group. For those who are new to the group, it may be their first opportunity to take part in a project like this and gain peer support.
We are pleased to be supported by our Patron Nick Mulvey.
