Expert Meeting: Arts & Social Inclusion

As part of a year-long collaboration with Akoesticum and Landesmusikakademie NRW, we will showcase a broad range of examples of the successful use of the performing arts, arts education and community arts in social inclusion processes in different European countries and contexts. The meeting aims to facilitate the exchange of experiences for professionals, to strengthen existing networks and build new ones and to discuss practical approaches to sharing of resources and experiences.

The program will include:

  • Landesmusikrat NRW: overview of music projects in NRW, Germany
  • Mizgin Gülmüs (Sing mit mir / sing with me): project for unaccompanied under aged refugees in the city of Essen
  • Laura Hassler & Otto de Jong (Musicians without Borders)
  • Anis Barnat (El Sistema Greece): music project following the Venezuelan model launched in refugee camps in Greece in 2015
  • Sascha Düx (ROOTS & ROUTES): network promoting international exchange of young artists, talent development, promotion of social and cultural diversity in arts and media, and interdisciplinary projects across Europe
  • Julian Fifer (Musicians for Human Rights, Italy)
  • Darren Abrahams (Crisis Classroom – Empowerment through Education for all Refugees, UK)

This partnership program is financially supported by the (EU) Interreg / Euregio Rhijn- Waal and is open to arts practitioners and organizations interested in community building and in learning how music, dance and theater can make a positive contribution to social integration.
