ELFTin1Voice perform ‘See me as I am’

 

A group of staff and service users from across the trust came together in one voice to give a rousing performance ending the morning of the 2019 Quality Conference. Over the past few months, singers met in Bedford and London to learn a specially composed piece of music by choir leader Leanne Sedin which highlighted the importance of co-production in health care. #ELFTin1Voice were excited to be joined by psychiatry trainee and rapper, Mandeep Singh, who created a spoken word vignette to open the piece and an improvised rap, reflecting on themes from the talks in the morning. Inspired by the theme of co-production, the performance also included improvised ‘music in the moment’, with singers working together to create a musical soundscape underpinning the improvised rap. ​

Reflecting on the performance, Jennifer French (Head of Arts Therapies, Tower Hamlets Directorate and Professional lead for Arts Therapies Trustwide) said:

“A huge thank you to everyone who took part in this amazing, inspiring and joyous performance rounding off the quality conference. It’s wonderful to see the creative capacities of our staff and service users being shared and celebrated in so many different ways as part of ELFT culture and values. Can’t wait for the next exciting adventure!”
