A Fischy Music International and collaborative song-writing project has been awarded: Winner of a Building Better Healthcare Awards 2023.
Following the award-winning work of St Columba’s Hospice Care and Fischy Music, the project brought school communities together with hospice patients to explore change, loss, and grief.
Hospice patients from St Columba’s Hospice Care in Edinburgh and from the Galilee palliative care unit in Greece came together with children from George Heriot’s School and from Elliniki Paideia respectively. The group named themselves GRESCO Agape. They met over a number of weeks and wrote songs exploring, expressing and sharing experiences of change, loss and grief in life.
Listen to the songs written and view audio-visual examples from the process of the project in this video, above.
