Since 2008, Palestine Community Music has grown to become a multifaceted program that empowers youth to express themselves and serve their communities. The project has offered uplifting, music-based activities to young people who lack social or cultural opportunities, and has reached thousands of the most marginalized children of the West Bank. Programs include Music and Nonviolence Leadership training, music workshops for the deaf and children with special needs and the Musical Playground. In addition, special projects have included using rap as a tool for social change, and Music as Therapy training, in cooperation with Music as Therapy Internat
The Musical Playground program maximizes impact with our limited staff, while retaining the rich diversity of activities and target groups. Thousands of school children each year benefit from regular music workshops including dancing, singing, rapping and body percussion, empowering and engaging children, school staff and families in a festive celebration.
