Over the past year we have supported many women through lockdown as part of our Through My Window COVID-19 community response.
We recently joined forces with singer, songwriter Carol Laula and women across Glasgow to create our own Through My Window anthem, reflecting experiences of lockdown, as well as imagining and sharing ideas for a hopeful future.
The project involved our women’s groups, as well as individuals from across the city. The collaborative song writing process brought the women together as they used music and writing to explore their emotions, creating a shared song that elicits a sense of pride and achievement.
Participants contributed lyrics by imagining what life might be like post COVID-19, prompted by questions such as:
- What will you do next?
- What have we missed?
- What are your hopes and how might they be achieved?
The finished song brings together many of the lyrics and suggestions that were sent to us and is a shared message of optimism for the future.
Listen along with our music video below! You can also watch our ‘Making of’ documentary to hear from the women involved and find out more about how the song came together.
