Shame Chorus, by Jordan McKenzie, is an uplifting music project about shame and sexuality sung by members of London Gay Men's Chorus and commissioned by the Freud Museum. To find out more click here.
Inspired by the impact of Shame Chorus as a music project, we will be working alongside Space Youth Project in Weymouth to firstly create a song and then produce a film to go alongside it. Space members will be working alongside two songwriters to write and compose the song (which will then go on to be recorded professionally). After this a filmographer (shortlisted and interviewed by the young people) will work with the group to create the professional film to go with the song. The song and the film will both stimulate a guided discussion to tackle stigma as well as raise awareness to phobic behaviour and the mental health issues that arise when individuals are socially isolated.
