Bread & Roses: Songwriting and Spoken Word Award 2018

 

The Communication Workers’ Union (CWU) and Culture Matters are pleased to announce the second edition of their successful Bread and Roses Songwriting and Spoken Word Award. The Musicians’ Union is also sponsoring and supporting the Award.

The Award is an example of cultural democracy – the struggle for a more democratic and socialist approach to the arts and all cultural activities, accompanying the struggle of the working class for political and economic democracy. Our aim is to encourage young and emerging musicians and performers in particular to write material relevant to working-class people, culture and communities.

There is a £100 cash prize for each of the top five entries. The judges will be drawn from practising performers, the CWU, the MU, and members of Culture Matters.

Rules and Guidelines for Submissions

1. Entry is free and is open to all residents of Great Britain, regardless of trade union membership.

2. Entries should broadly deal with any aspect of working-class life, communities, culture and concerns.

Invite – recreating the Chilean mural (on cloth)

As part of the preparations for the Victor Jara festival ‘El Sueño Existe’ 2019, we will be creating, on a large cloth, a new version of the Leeds Chilean Mural : Y Habra Trabajo para Todos / And There Will be Work for All (picture of the mural attached – the other translation is into Welsh, which is important for the festival which is in Wales and recognises the importance of the Welsh language)

Briefly, the mural was originally painted by 3 young Chilean exiles in 1976, shortly after they arrived in Leeds. It was tiled over in the 80s and only rediscovered by chance in 2017.

It has been preserved and restored after a campaign by Chileans and supporters.BUT it is rather hidden on a wall in Leeds University student union and is difficult to visit or see.
