Journey to MARS!

LogoMARS_TransWe have just embarked on a new voyage, thanks to a UE funded Erasmus+ project coordinated by the International Music Council (France) for the development of an online resource centre and specialized training course for psycho-social music interventions in deprived and marginalised communities, in Europe and beyond.

We are proud to participate in a very strong partnership, together with IMC, Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy (UK), Moviment Coral Catalan (Spain), Euridea Education Agency (Italy) and of course our Palestinian partner NISCVT ‘Beit Atfal Assumoud’ (Lebanon).

Visit the project’s new site!

Attention all community musicians, music therapists, and social / health / education workers interested in improving competences and skills within this work context: Applications are open for the MARS specialization course (free of charge – details on website).

Thank You Tuscany!

We have come to the end of the 2-year period of co-funding granted by the Region of Tuscany, which has enabled us to consolidate our work with Beit Atfal Assumoud and to develop future threads to follow.

Here is the Music Therapy Research Report.

Coming soon: the video-synthesis of activities during the 2 years!
