In this presentation, MwB founder and director Laura Hassler explores the role of the arts in shining light on the contradictions of our societies, and the potential of music to help address the loss of home, culture and identity for people on the move.

In September, MwB director Laura Hassler will be in Australia to speak at several conferences and music conservatories, on how music can create transformative change within communities affected by war and armed conflict.

On World Refugee Day we teamed up with Amsterdam Roots Festival and Pakhuis de Zwijger to explore the changing perspectives on refugees. It was a powerful evening with inspiring speakers, art initiatives and beautiful music. We’re also very proud that Musicians without Borders launched Art27 – a platform to raise voices through the arts for social inclusion.
