Creative writing workshop and song writing with the young prisoners of the Malaspina Juvenile Detention Facility in Palermo
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To improve the living conditions of the young prisoners and promote creativity and writing through music, as well as their well-being and ability to share, educating them about beauty. To foster productive reinsertion into society at the end of their sentence via emotional and relational growth based on music and words. To offer the young prisoners a place to experiment, share feelings, fears and hopes, and express themselves to those living with them and those on the outside
Approximately 10 young prisoners at the Malaspina Juvenile Detention Facility and, indirectly, their cellmates and families
The project foresees the realization of a creative musical workshop in the Malaspina Juvenile Detention Facility whereby the emotional sensitivity of the detained youths will be stimulated through music associated with words, an instrument that enriches their cultural knowledge and addresses them towards beauty and artistic sensitivity. Music stimulates reflection, frees expression and, in some sense, acts as a personal catharsis for the young prisoners who are able to express themselves and feel freer and as protagonists.
Teaching song writing refers to the curriculum of the “Autori” (authors) course that is held annually at the C.E.T. (Tuscolana European Centre), a school for musical training directed by Mogol, and is based on programming developed via theoretical teaching and practical exercises. The workshop is conducted by an expert song writer, a musician and a tutor with experience in managing groups of “at risk” youths, along with the Facility personnel.
In 2022/2023, the workshop aims at realizing a collection of texts and carrying out work systematizing, producing and recording the songs, eventually publishing a CD/video. At the end of the project, a concluding event will be held to present the songs written by the youths
