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.

We’re back to Northern Ireland training musicians and community workers to become community music leaders.

The project aims to address the consequences of the N.Ireland conflict, reaching out to communities affected by years of hostilities and mistrust. Through music we bridge divides and create empathic connections that help to rebuild a more resilient and peaceful society.

This program is in partnership with Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin.
