Music Riot is a programme for young people, based on the power of music-making to transcend differences and show the way for humility and appreciation of others. The project will work in areas of most deprivation in Derry, challenging stereotypes and promoting inclusion, equity and respect for diversity.
A team of experienced music tutors will bring young people together to write, then record and perform songs over four days. Working in 10 different areas of the city, the project will reach 150 participants; produce a 20-song CD, and a concert in the Millennium Forum.
Music Riot is a tried and proven formula which is acknowledged as a creative and fun means by which to reach young people with meaningful messages around good relations and good citizenship for a normal society.
