The Musical

The Musical is the glue that binds our team together              

What About Us is an anti-war protest musical inspired, written, and performed by artists representing the What About Us generation, a new voice for change.       

Over 50 talented young composers, writers and singers are developing the creative. They come from countries that have been affected by war, conflict, and terror including Israel, Palestine, and Ireland, where the musical’s story is based.

The story addresses key societal issues this generation is facing such as increasing armed conflicts, people trafficking, leadership corruption, and refugees forced to leave their home because of war or persecution, wrapped up in a beautiful love story.

The What About Us World Band

The musical is opening new opportunities for Artists to collaborate across Borders. Our platform has been built using new digital tools that enable Artists to meet virtually, share ideas, explore artistic directions, write songs, compose music, and create new and original work.

A short-term goal is to enable the Artists to commercialize their work through the What About Us platform, Brand, and industry relationships.

The first album, featuring songs from multiple Artists, is under development and a campaign to promote its release underway,       

Special Projects

Workshops

The What About Us Creative team has hosted numerous workshops, virtual and in-person, building cross community relationships; music being the common voice that connects people.

Workshops to date have connected the Nationalist and Unionist communities in Ireland and Artists together in Israel and Palestine.  

The workshops will continue as a focus for the team, connecting communities in conflict through Music and the Arts.  

Workshops are also providing mentorship to interested, keen and emerging Artists that perhaps cannot afford professional guidance.

 

Instruments

What About Us have a community program collecting previously loved and used musical instruments and distributing them to underprivileged young people who are eager to explore their artistic capabilities.
