Making Music with Refugees at the Philharmonie de Paris
Sponsor(s): Forum for Scholars and Publics, Center for French and Francophone Studies, Dean of Humanities, Franklin Humanities Institute (FHI), Music, and Romance Studies
Cost: Free and open to the public
In the past decade, political and economic issues have spurred significant migration within Europe. One of the ways to create ties with refugees and aid their integration is through music. Art and entertainment thus supply the conditions for contact and shared experience. Many projects carried out in France, notably at the Philharmonie de Paris, have allowed us to determine interest for the communities involved, as well as limits. In this talk moderated by Anne-Gaëlle Saliot (Romance Studies), Emmanuel Hondré, a director at the Philharmonie de Paris, discusses his experiences working with refugees. Free and open to the public. Light lunch served.
Type: AFRICA FOCUS, EUROPE FOCUS, CONCERT/MUSIC, PANEL/SEMINAR/COLLOQUIUM, and FREE FOOD AND BEVERAGES
