Music in all its forms is one of our big passions, it is a very accesible way to express what you feel, to share emotions and to communicate with others, even if they do not speak the same language.
Music is a universal language that we all understand. In our experience in Brussels, a very multicultural city, we have realized that music is a great tool of integration for many who newly come to a country. We like to use this tool to build bridges between different cultures or nationalities and create a common language and a strong connection between all participants.
What we propose:
- Participatory projects with youngsters and adults around music in its broadest sence.
- Create a song with the participants and record it in a studio.
- Realize a Videoclip (See examples in ‘realized projects’).
- Organize workshops where people can come and express themselves through music, play in a jam session and discover instruments by playing and experimenting immediately all together.
