We're attending Midem for the first time in 2013 to raise awareness of the work of Nathan Timothy Foundation - The Songwriting Charity. We're looking forward to finding new business partners to sponsor our unique and innovative songwriting programmes in the UK throughout 2013/2014. We are also looking to develop global links for projects in 2014 and beyond.
The work of the Songwriting Charity addresses the emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people, using songwriting and music technology. We have eight distinct workshop offerings covering subjects such as bullying, school transition, nutrition and healthy living to world peace.
We work in partnership with and are supported by SoundCloud, BPI, BASCA, AIM, PRS, MMF and YouTube. We work with over 200 primary, secondary and special schools and a many local authorities around the country.
We're connected by music just like you, and we're passionate about the art & craft of songwriting just like you. We're here at Midem to ask you to bring your expertise to the table. We need your help, encouragement, support. We want to work with you to make a difference in the communities in which we live, learn and work. We want to work with you to make a positive difference to the lives of young people around the world, particularly those who are economically, educationally and socially disadvantaged and excluded.
Over the next four days at Midem, and in the weeks afterwards, we'll be inviting constituents of the music industry, from artists, labels, producers, managers, to leading global media brands to join our Gold Disc Sponsors Programme, to adopt and invest in one of our highly innovative and engaging songwriting programmes for between one and three years.
Children taking part in our workshops grow in confidence, self-esteem, knowledge and understanding of the world around them. They are inspired, empowered and proud of their work. Children also develop an appreciation for the value of the songs they and their peers have written. This is of particular relevance to our industry as we try to stem the tide of illegal download of digital media, through the delivery of songwriting workshops in schools.
Let us work together and help thousands of children to develop and achieve a greater sense of wellbeing and happiness, fulfilling their potential and enriching the world in which they live in.
