WAV believes in the power of every voice. We are proud to announce the Bridges of Love program that will uplift a group of important, underheard voices in our community.
WAV is facilitating workshops that pair local musicians and producers with incarcerated mothers and their children. Together, the families will write and produce a collection of songs about their shared experiences. The finished music will premiere at live performances in early 2021 hosted by Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA) and will be made available for the entire community to stream online.
Over the course of ten, one hour sessions, our groups connect with each other, listen to each other, learn from each other, and provide healing for each other.
Under the guidance of a team of professional musicians, producers, videographers and visual artists, the group takes the content of their conversations and create a professionally recorded songs, music videos, and visual artwork to accompany their song.
