WMIM Members: We Need You!

February 12, 2021

As lockdown continues, the staff have been brainstorming to come up with some more projects to keep us all going! We would like to put forward a couple of project ideas to see whether any of our lovely WMIM members would like to be involved. Back in the first lockdown Sarah and Kate wrote the lyrics for a WMIM anthem and Matthew has put these to music. The staff are going to learn it, make a video and get it out to you in the usual manner. What we would REALLY love is for as many WMIM members as possible to learn it and help us make a video with as many voices as we can! Who’s in?

The second project idea involves gathering stories from you all about your lives and how music has influenced or affected you. We want to come to interview you (when it’s safe) and ask you questions using a Dictaphone. We will then transcribe the interviews, do some analysis to find common themes, and finally create a book with stories, photos, recipes - anything that’s been important and interesting in your lives. If you would like to take part in this, and have your “story” involved, send us an email or give us a ring to register your interest. Then as soon as we’re allowed, we’ll be over to quiz you!

We hope you're as excited as we are about these potential projects, and please don't hesitate to contact us to let us know if you'd like to get involved or if you have any questions.
