About the event

A casual catch up for local songwriters in Tāmaki Makaurau. A chance to network, talk about song ideas, share resources, do little challenges (if you want) with a couple of performances at the end. All with a cuppa tea / coffee. Hosted by Ema I'u.

We are picking up where we left off where Ema was hosting a Songwriter Club at Empire Tavern and then Win-Win Bar a couple years ago.

**All welcome. You don't have to have already written songs, you could just be interested in getting into it and looking for some inspiration.**

If this goes well, we'll endevour to host an event every month or so. Perhaps will different themes, performers and hosts.

Holding Space Aotearoa Charitable Trust is a non-profit Arts Organisation with a mission to 'hold space' for our artistic community and worthy causes. Our focus is on community projects, events, workshops, open mics and creative content.

Songwriters 4 Climate Action is a Project intended to bring together community-based performers through a series of workshops and activities; to help support and inspire them to develop songs, artwork and start conversations that highlight the challenges and hopes for climate action. Our aim is to work towards live performances and record songs / creative content (to a professional standard) that we can share on multiple platforms to help spread awareness and positivity around low carbon climate action. This Project has expanded to promote the collaboration and response of artists to the work of Kaitianga, Practitioners and other experts active in the Climate Field. Through this process we hope to support dialogue and connection between many communities and learn a thing or two along the way.
