Singing in the (Prison) Community: Music, Environment and Well-being, with Dr Kirstin Anderson, Lecturer in Criminal Justice, University of the West of Scotland

In this lecture/workshop Dr Anderson will speak about singing in prison and singing in community spaces (including the workplace). She will highlight similarities, differences and the impact of collective music-making on community, well-being and criminal justice.

The lecture will be followed by a singing workshop led by Cole Bendall, Teaching Fellow for the Centre of Open Learning at the University of Edinburgh and Artistic Director of the Reid Consort. The workshop is open to everyone with all levels of music experience (or none!). The aim is to have fun singing.

A short reception will follow, which everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to join us, please sign up through Eventbrite; https://edin.ac/2Ku5IG2
