BOEMI: call for 2 participants for a project on music and new media

Do you want to be part of a project that links your passion for music and new media to the knowledge of other cultures? Do you want to live an experience that will enhance your knowledge and employability skills, allowing you to visit other countries and meet people from other continents?

Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo “Danilo Dolci” coordinates the project BOEMI – Building Our Employment skill through Music Investigations and new media, co-funded by the European Commission (Erasmus+ – KA2 Capacity Building for Youth in ACP countries, Latin America and Asia), aiming at increasing the expertise of 36 youth workers from Europe and Africa through the experimentation of Reciprocal Maieutic Approach (RMA) in the field of music and ICT. The project wants to raise their employability skills through the use of music and innovative educational tools, fostering intercultural, intergenerational and interpersonal exchanges at all levels and increasing their digital, ICT and media literacy skills. During its implementation, a group of youth workers will research traditional music, record and put it on the music platform. Also, participants will attend 5 workshops on music and RMA, spreading knowledge on the promotion of music through ICT. Italian participants will contribute to the organization of a final concert in Palermo involving all the BOEMI international members.

The project envisages the following events:

  • Study phase in all partner countries on traditional music, travelling all around the regions discovering local songs
