This year we are excited to have partnered up with our friends at Compass Collective to deliver weekly online sessions with teenage refugees and asylum seekers here without friends or family. We are also happy to introduce Espoir – a previous participant – as a trainee on this project. This session will showcase the music video of the track the young people have been busy making on the theme of ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’, this years Refugee Week theme. The young people will present a short Q&A covering ‘behind the scenes’ and how they got to the finished track. There will also be a chance for audience interaction through some music games and exercises.


Creative Online Session for Young People

Friday 18 June 2021, 5 – 6.30pm

Part of Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution Events

Join our facilitators Mohammed, Kensaye and Sindy to explore beats, tunes and lyrics from different cultures, including places people have had to escape from conflict. Music is a powerful way to increase well-being, express ourselves and connect people across cultural, religious and geographical borders to create positive change.

In this session, our facilitators will talk about the experience of conflict in other countries and use their music and production skills to facilitate participants to create their own piece of music online together.

All levels of music experience welcome.

‘A Discovery of Voice’ is a FREE interactive series of events incorporating a discovery of voice and emotions through music that focuses on promoting understandings of mental health, emotions, relationships, communication and nurturing a more confident society through expressions such as music and music therapy.
