Activities

The project, authorised by the Central Service of Italy’s Protection System for Asylum Seekers and Refugees (SPRAR), involves training musicians to lead musical workshops with refugees and asylum seekers living in SPRAR centres in various parts of Italy. The training is held in two cities and is led by an expert from Musicians Without Borders and a trainer from Musicians for Human Rights.

The training is subdivided into three cycles over the course of six months. Between cycles, the trained musicians begin to operate in the SPRAR centres, running musical workshops under the supervision of the trainers. In 2017 MFHR ran a pilot project in this field: 32 musicians from the organisation took part in training run by MWB in Rome and led workshops in three SPRAR centres in Lazio (Civitavecchia, Rome and Sora).
