Are you an established or professional songwriter with a range of musical styles? Are you also interested in working collaboratively with elders and providing a service to the community? If so, we would like to hear from you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Engaging in the songwriting process is a very rewarding and enriching experience, for both elder and songwriter. This is what songwriter Bonnie Meadow has to say about the work:
“When I left my elder’s house the other day, the thought that came into my mind was, as we have always said: ‘This is sacred work.’ I am amazed and gratified that my elder opens up to me as she does and lays before me her trials and triumphs, like so many petals on my path. We are now still bathed in mystery as to what her song will be, what it will have to say, and what it will sound like, but the mystery is precious and beautiful and we will travel through it together. Together we will reconstruct all of those petals into the flower that will be her song, and we will then reveal it to the world in honor of the woman she has been all her life. For this, I feel blessed to be a SageArts songwriter.”
