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.
As we prepare for the final week of training for our 2016-2017 Music Bridge program, we are taking stock of how our trainees have been developing as community music workshop leaders over the course of the year.
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 was the second week of training in our Northern Ireland project this year. We are training musicians and community workers to become community music leaders.
Today, 26 children enjoyed 2 hours of creative music workshops run by our trainees. They danced, sang, wrote songs, built instruments from junk, and performed in front of their friends!
This program is in partnership with Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin.
