Music Bridge

Music Bridge is a multi-year collaborative project to create sustainable community music programs within Northern Ireland’s divided communities.


Music Bridge employs the expertise of Musicians without Borders in partnership with Culturlann Uí Chanáin, a pioneer in bringing a multi-ethnic approach to the exploration of arts and culture in the city of Derry-Londonderry.

This collaborative project trains community music professionals, local musicians and community organizations in using music to contribute to reconciliation and bridge building across the divides that history has created in Northern Ireland.

Music Bridge

The goal of Music Bridge is to create sustainable community music programs contributing to reconciliation, community building and healing for people throughout Derry-Londonderry.

We lead music workshop leadership training for community workers and musicians interested in developing meaningful projects in their communities with a focus on children and youth from fragile environments.

Our trainees have been able to organize and implement creative music activities within both single and mixed identity communities with the aim of strengthening their self-identity, creating common goals while learning more about what connects us rather than what separates us. The trainees use their acquired variety of musical skills to further their understanding of positive group leadership, principles of nonviolence and emotional self-awareness. Ultimately, the project aims to establish successful working models of community music programs that can gradually be implemented throughout Northern Ireland.
