A new donor for M&R

We have just received a generous donation from Cheap Street Church, Sherborne, Dorset (UK).

THANK YOU to the Church council, congregation and community for supporting M&R; we look forward to coming to present the project locally.

Anyone else who would like to support M&R can do so via our crowd-funding campaign.

Fund raising evening for M&R

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of our “Serata Palestinese” on 18th March; a highly enjoyable evening with presentation conference, a delicious Arabic supper, and lots of music.

Funds raised will go towards covering the live costs of  this year’s project actions, the next of which starts next week: a 10-day Community Music workshop in Beddawi and Saida refugee camps, led by Prima Materia and supported by MARS training students from Italy, Spain and UK.

 

Planning for April …

This week PM has completed follow-up visits to Beddawi and Saida Community Music groups, for detailed planning of the April workshops, when a team of 6 musicians from Italy, Spain and UK (including 4 students from the Erasmus Plus MARS project) will work with children and trainers for 8 days, in preparation for the Summer program.

Follow-up was also provided for the Music Therapy research project; data collection is planned during 2017, prior to analysis and presentation in 2018.
