The Lockdown Sessions
The lockdown sessions was a new project that we ran, to help young people explore their feelings/ views on the pandemic through self-expression in either music or poetry, and discussion.
Young people attended virtual workshop sessions to support them and received recording sessions so they could record their self-reflections of lockdown, in their preferred art form.
We had 10 young people on this project who we interviewed and created a 10 part mini podcast series called The Lockdown Sessions. These short podcasts were aired on Radio2Funky and also uploaded to our SoundCloud account.
Some of these participants also recorded some music, whereas others preferred to choose a song that helped them cope with lockdown.
This project has helped young people illustrate their personal experiences of lockdown and has encouraged them to seek help when needed.
Thank you to Near Neighbours for funding this project.
