Co-written is a series of songwriting and performance workshops in New York led by artist and educator Chris Ignacio and local musicians for young people of color.

Throughout the workshops, participants will learn how to write and perform original songs, and collaborate with professional NY musicians to record those songs and elevate them to a professional level.

The aim is for the young songwriters to first realize their capacity as artists, and then experience their words echoing out into a community, taking on different forms and meanings. The project challenges ideas of authorship and product in a hyper-consumerist market by asking: How does one own something? What are the defining lines between acknowledgment and exploitation? When is something finished?
