War Divides, Music Connects: music as a tool for empathy
Wednesday, 13 September, 2017

As active and concerned human beings, how do we understand the state of our world and our species in these turbulent times? As musicians and music professionals, which core qualities of the art form we know and love can we access to contribute to saving lives, bridging divides, and healing the wounds of war and injustice? How do we connect effectively and appropriately with people affected by war and conflict? As artists and arts professionals, how do we frame our activism, our scholarship, our community involvement, our devotion to social change? MwB director Laura Hassler explores how musicians may be our era’s most powerful peacemakers.
