Sometimes, songs can give us the courage to face the future…

Join artists weish and Crystal Goh, as they perform original songs by youths from Singapore Girls’ Home who participated in Esplanade’s Songwriting for Hope programme. The girls have courageously used the songwriting process to explore themes like the loss of loved ones, regrets and self-worth, while finding transformation, gratitude and hope in the process.

About Songwriting for Hope

Songwriting for Hope is a community engagement programme by Esplanade –Theatres on the Bay, in partnership with Diamonds On The Street. The programme seeks to provide youths-at-risk with an opportunity for deeper engagement through songwriting as a form of creative expression. Through a series of workshops, participants learn skills of song craft, with the aim of turning their crises into hope.

Check out the lyrics written by selected programme participants at the exhibition at Esplanade Tunnel (7 Aug 2020 – 25 Oct 2020).
