your playlists

During the course of the COVID-19 pandemic we launched our project I Made You A Playlist; a new multimedia project created in collaboration with you, for you.

Over the course of the pandemic we asked you to help us create the ultimate playlist by dedicating a song to a special person or place that you were missing. We received so many wonderful dedications that we created an online virtual playlist for you all to enjoy – this is that space.

I Made You A Playlist is a project that was created when theatres closed their doors and many shows, artists, freelancers and creatives turned online to engage audiences in much needed cultural activities. This is where I Made You A Playlist developed from. Our aim was to give our local community an opportunity to reconnect with loved ones and places virtually over music and memories. These dedications resulted in a series of live-streamed performances during 2020-2021.

During 2020, Summer Streets Festival commissioned the first ever I Made You A Playlist and saw over 50 people sent dedications into our playlist. A selection of these dedications were incorporated into a live-streamed performance during July 2020. In 2021 and as we found ourselves a year on from the first lockdown we brought back I Made You A Playlist as part of Northumbria Winter Festival. Again over 50 people sent in dedications to add to our ever growing playlist. In March 2021 we live streamed two performances as part of the Festival and saw people from all over the world join us.
