GAIA is looking for 4 participants and 1 group leader!

Join us in this exploration of songs and lyrics in different languages about migration & refugee topics. You should be able to play a musical instrument, or sing, or dance, or like to perform and to learn about music. Two final concerts will be given.

We want to celebrate a multicultural society, using music as an easy medium to bring people to together. The region of Germany in which we will be working has recently received many refugees and would benefit from events that show positive experiences of multiculturalism.

We aim for an intensive group experience with frequent communication of needs and interests and spaces for an open and spontaneous exchange between the participants and the people we encounter. We will use morning rounds, coordinators’ meetings, informal games, intercultural nights, personal storytelling rounds, rhythm workshops, jam sessions, small- and large-group rehearsals, informal street music performances, a formal concert, the Youth Pass acredidation, and create a video documentary about the project.

The project strives to be intersectionally feminist and LGBTQI+ friendly.
