The project aims at putting together 2 European orchestras with Syrian musicians that sought refugee in EU and with SEPO (Syrian Expat Philharmonic Orchestra) in order to co-create a first work to be performed around the partner’s countries (Italy, Spain and Bosnia Herzegovina). During the events, concerts will be combined with public events to raise awareness on Syrian refugees situation.

The project will thus enhance mutual cultural understanding first of all among musicians of the involved orchestras, using music as a channel of communication and also foster intercultural and inter-religious dialogue, and respect for other cultures involving different audiences during the public side events, through an informed political debate as an aspect of cultural activity.
