Our Mitrovica Rock School is hosting its 10th annual summer school this week in Skopje, Macedonia, where students come together from both sides of the divided city of Mitrovica to write, record and perform original songs.

We are training 35 music teachers and community facilitators in community music leadership, reaching out to thousands of children across the country, and using music for inclusion and social harmony.

This program is in partnership with Unicef El Salvador and the Ministerio de Educación E.S.

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.
