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.
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.

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.
