One of our wonderful programme participants – Elaine McGinty – has created a She Leads Change playlist to get you dancing, laughing, dreaming…! Listen on Spotify.

The selection of songs – that people might like (or hate!) – are of different genres, tempos for different moods from classical to punk, but with a common theme of hope, truth and human essence.

Elaine is the CEO/Founder at Phoenix Cultural Centre CIC running the Fiery Bird Live Music Venue, is a presenter of the Fiery Bird Radio Show, a vocalist and lyricist with Phoenix Chroi and a freelance writer.

Please listen, share and get in touch with your own song suggestions!
