"When we start a workshop in a refugee center, many of us are strangers to each other. Yet, generally, within a few minutes we are playing together with the openheartedness of children. That’s the power of music – it bridges the divides of language, origin, cultures and customs. It can lift a weary heart and heal trust that has been broken. What a way to welcome new people to my country!"
- Franka, workshop leader
In honor of World Refugee Day and World Wide Music Day (June 20-21), join us in promoting access to music as a fundamental human right and a celebration of diversity, freedom and equality. The continuation of our work with refugees and war-torn communities depends on your support. Please give today, any amount helps.
The music students at Croydon College present the Global Snowball Christmas gig to bring the Croydon Community closer together. We are raising money and awareness for those in need around the world that have had their human rights violated through war violence and other means. The money raised will go towards such projects as training youth workers to work with disadvantaged children in war torn areas.
We are aspiring musicians who want to make a change. We have been studying human rights and using this as inspiration for our compositions and performances for the gig. The songs we have been composing cover human rights issues such as the right to equality, freedom from discrimination and the right to education. The people we are raising money for are our inspiration and we want to give something back.
The gig will be held on December the 8th at Croydon College, doors open at 5.30pm. You can either donate online via this website or on the door.
