Academic Public Engagement
Distil your research into a fully produced song for use in talks, youtube explainers, events, and any other academic outreach you can think of. By going through the songwriting process with me, you will refine your communication skills, finding ways to express your research by defining a clear message in succinct, snappy soundbites.
I have worked with researchers across all disciplines at Oxford University to help them translate their research into song. Here are some of the things that they have said about the process.
"It was great to work with Jonny because it really helped me clarify what I wanted to communicate." - Jamie Hartmann-Boyce, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Science
Creative arts can re-engage young people who have turned their back on science or learning. Music production and song-writing are great ways to capture their imagination, build their confidence, and use their energy in a positive, practical way whilst engaging deeply in scientific ideas. Projects can work within school settings over long time periods or in informal settings over a few days.
