Love to write songs but looking for new ideas and inspiration?

We’re offering the chance to work alongside world class songwriters and scientists and create music to feature in a major London exhibition.

Sex and science have inspired some incredible lyrics and music, but both can be pretty complex and daunting subjects. Wellcome Collection’s upcoming exhibition, The Institute of Sexology*, explores how the pioneers in the study of sex have influenced how we think about sex and relationships today. We’re looking for creative 16-19 year-olds to use their musical skills to join them in bringing the subject to life.

On this intensive project you’ll work with scientists to discover the possibilities of research and find inspiration from themes of sex and relationships. You’ll also hear from artists and guest speakers who draw from sexuality and science in their music.

You’ll work with songwriters who’ve collaborated with Kylie Minogue and Girls Aloud (to name a few), to write and professionally record your own songs based on what you’ve found out.

There’ll be opportunities to showcase your work at a live performance at the exhibition.

Find out how to apply using the tab above – application deadline: 5pm, Wednesday 5th November

*Please note, this exhibition contains material of a sexual nature.
