Orpheus XXI – Music for life and dignity
Whereas Europe is hosting a large number of refugees, the Saline Royale (FR), the International Ancient Music Centre (SP), the International Cities of Refugee Network (NOR) and the association Coop’Agir (FR) value the presence in Europe of professional traditional refugee musicians, who will train 20 refugee instrumentalists and signers who will in turn intervene with children of all nationalities. Certain children will be selected to form musical ensembles in view of a series of concerts to be held in schools, refugee communities and musical institutions in Europe. The good practices of this experimental model will be used to establish a replicable programme of activities from 2018.
Under the artistic management of Jordi Savall, an EU ambassador for inter-cultural dialogue, “ORPHEUS XXI – Music for life and dignity” is an artistic and educational action plan, designed as a replicable learning platform, for the integration of young refugees having musical knowledge or talent.
The project starts on November, 1st 2016 and ends on October, 31st 2018.
The project “Orpheus XXI – Music for life and dignity” received the financial support of the European Commission as part of the Creative Europe Programme on 29 September 2016.
The project “Orpheus XXI – Music for life and dignity” also received a financial support of the Orange Foundation, Edmonds of Rothschild Foundation and the Caisse des dépôts Group.
