WAR DIVIDES, MUSIC CONNECTS
Using music to bridge divides, connect communities,
and heal the wounds of war and conflict.
Background

As refugees arrive in increasing numbers in Italy, Musicians without Borders and Musicians for Human Rights are building a program of support and solidarity. Our trainers and workshop leaders use the power of music to engage people living in reception centers, building trust and connection among refugees, as well as with the local communities in which they are now located. The program in Italy is an expansion of our pilot program in The Netherlands with the goal of creating connections between local musicians and refugees throughout Europe.

Goals:

  • Bring hope and comfort to those who have been driven from their homes by war, persecution, or human rights violations.
  • Build bridges and create solidarity in European communities.
  • Provide a safe, fun, and supportive space for artistic expression and cultural exchange.
Training for Musicians

We offer training for musicians who want to learn how to use music as a tool to support refugees and asylum seekers. This training has been specially adapted from Musicians without Borders’ advanced training course and will include supervised practical work at reception centers. With this training, we offer musicians the necessary skills to lead music workshops for refugees in Italian communities.

The first 3-day training will take place in Rome on 24, 25, and 26 of March, 2017, and will be held in English. Apply now: http://mwb.to/WelcomeItaly
