Lyrics To Go
In 2014, Manifesto partnered with Pattison-OneStop to produce the Lyrics to Go campaign, which featured lyrics by local talent in and around the TTC system during National Poetry Month in April. This panel discussion invites select Lyrics to Go artists to speak about their inspirations and processes when creating poetry and lyrics. Artists in the audience will gain exposure to various processes for creating meaningful and memorable lyrics. The audience will learn about inspiration behind the lyrics. Discussion will also touch on the influences of words and lyrical meaning in songs, and the process of songwriting.
