The Civic are delighted to present our ‘Songs of Change’, ten new songs on the theme of identity, community and our journey through life, inspired by the idea of change. On the 18th March 2020, The Civic Theatre along with all other cultural institutions followed government guidelines and closed its doors. Silence settled into the corners of the building. No voices rang out from the stage. There was no heady buzz of conversation in the foyer. The Civic reached out to local citizens to explore the idea of change. Inspired by the words of local participants, brought to life in music by artists such Jess Kavanagh, Shiv, Toshín, Ellen Quinn Banville, Farah Elle, Maria Kelly, Síofra Nolan, Sinita, Faye O’Rourke & Debra Salem. Made possible through the kind support of Arts Council Ireland.
