In September we welcomed music therapists Alexia Quin and Elizabeth Coombes from our partners Music as Therapy International. For two intensive days, six new trainees (one via video) practiced Music as Therapy skills such as observing, listening, developing and improvising.

This year marks the first MwB training course delivered entirely by our Rwandan team. Yves and Espoir are working as lead trainers, alongside a team of experienced music leaders. They are training a group of 15 young people to use music to benefit 100s of vulnerable children.

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.
