In June, we ran a five-day Advanced Community Music Training in partnership with the Landesmusikakademie NRW, training local musicians to work with refugees and asylum seekers across Germany. More info: http://mwb.to/training
Today our trainees ran the final community event as part of our 2016-2017 Music Bridge training program in partnership with Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin. Almost 100 children participated in a 2.5 hours event “The Sounds of Seasons”!
Thank you St Eugene’s Primary School, Model Primary School and Gaelscoil Éadain Mhóir.
This is the final week of our 2016-2017 Music Bridge training program in partnership with Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin. This year, our trainees introduced their skills as music workshop leaders within a range of communities across Northern Ireland and abroad, working with prisoners, women’s groups, refugees and asylum seekers, schools and community groups.
We’re in Northern Ireland this week to continue training community music workshop leaders in our Music Bridge project. We’re joined by researchers from Queen’s University Belfast who wish learn more about our work as part of their multi-year study ‘Sounding Conflict: From Resistance to Reconciliation.’

This weekend, we began a new training for 30 musicians in Italy in partnership with MUSICIANS for HUMAN RIGHTS with the aim to develop inclusive music programs in local refugee centers.
This training is inspired by our Welcome Notes program, using music to support the inclusion of refugees and migrants throughout Europe.
