Lithgow City Council, with support from a NSW Government Youth Opportunities grant and local organisations Centwest Entertainment and Mitchell Conservatorium, are excited to present a song-writing weekend for young people considering pursuing a career in the creative industries. 

“The opportunity to work with industry professionals is rare so this program is a boon for our young people in the region,” says Mayor Ray Thompson.

The organisers have brought together internationally renowned song writers Lyn Bowtell, winner of 9 Gold Guitars, and Australian Music royalty Kevin Bennet to lead a team of mentors for the songwriters’ weekend workshops on 7 and 8 August 2021. Lyn and Kevin will be teaming up with local songwriters/ performers Kell Hamilton and Dave Webb.

Young people will be working individually and in collaboration with each other to write their own songs and learn all the tips and tricks of the trade. This weekend of workshops is part of an ongoing series called Create Lithgow where young creatives are mentored to learn all aspects of working in the creative industries.
