We use music to bridge divides, connect communities, and heal the wounds of war.
"I felt pride; pride in the trainees because in these circumstances they keep building on social environment, they keep concerning themselves about the children, and they keep enjoying making music. They make a difference in the Camp, they are heroes."
Last week, Musicians without Borders returned to Northern Ireland to begin a second year of training in community music leadership. This ongoing training program in partnership with Culturlann Ui Chanain aims to make a sustained impact on the lives of vulnerable children by encouraging positive forms of self-expression and promoting the values of inclusion, equality and nonviolence within communities that have been divided by conflict.
On 25 October at 15.00, Argentine pianist Juan Pablo Dobal will give a benefit concert for Musicians without Borders Juan Pablo Dobal is currently the pianist in the Carel Kraayenhof Ensemble in addition to performing with many renowned artists across the Netherlands, from Nynke Laverman to Eric Vloeimans. Please RSVP for this event with Marja Weers.
