Music Leadership Summit
11 October 2021 - 15 October 2021
Musicians Without Borders, in collaboration with partners from Jordan and Bosnia-Herzegovina, host this expanded course that combines training and expertise-sharing, focused on using music to build connection and solidarity in the context of a world with a growing population on the move

Drawing on 20 years of experience in conflict regions around the world, Musicians Without Borders has developed an approach to using the power of music in communities experiencing the impact of war, poverty and displacement.

The Music Leadership Summit is an expanded training course, combining training and expertise-sharing by Musicians Without Borders and our partners.

We want to increase the impact of music professionals in facilitation and advocacy work with displaced people. The summit predominantly focuses on training practical skills in musical leadership that participants can apply to their own professional context.

If you recognise yourself in the following, this summit is for you:

  • You’ve had academic-level music training, or an equivalent of informal training
  • You have experience leading music activities
  • You currently work with or want to work with displaced people or in an allied field
  • You’re interested in using music for social change at the grassroots level

You will learn about:

  • The challenges and the potential of music and other arts projects in Jordan and Bosnia and Herzegovina, from the perspective of local professionals
  • The impact of the Covid-19 crisis on projects that work with forcibly displaced people
  • Musicians Without Borders’ five working principles – safety, inclusion, equality, creativity, quality – and how to apply them in the context of group work with displaced people
  • Considerations for facilitating musical activities in various cultural contexts
  • And much more...

An early bird discount rate (£100 off full price) is available until 10 July.
