When We Collide is a songbook written by the people of the United Kingdom about our collective identity

The EU referendum has forced the British nation to re-evaluate how we define ourselves, how we distribute power, our place within the EU and our relationship with the rest of the world. 

This songbook moves away from traditional notions of Britishness and uncovers what is actually important to this nation; what we care about, what we fear, and what we love. We are no longer a nation characterised by patriotism and a stiff upper lip. The movement of people and ideas around the UK and the world have signalled an enormous shift in our national character.
