Music & Resilience develops music resources within psycho-social, health and cultural frameworks, as a protection factor for the young generations of the Palestinian and other refugee communities living in Lebanon

Palestinians
in Lebanon

The daily living conditions of the Palestinian community in Lebanon are probably the hardest in all the Palestinian diaspora

Community music

There is no such thing as an a-musical person: Community Music places the person who is learning at the centre of the experience

Psychosocial music activities

Music workshops to stimulate nurturing interactions and positive social change that expands to the surrounding society

Music & Resilience is an international cooperation project in which the Associazione di Promozione Sociale Prima Materia (PM, Italy) works in collaboration with the Palestinian-Lebanese partner National Institution of Social Care and Vocational Training (NISCVT, Lebanon, Arabic name Beit Atfal Assumoud).

The project was created in 2011 to support and develop psycho-educational resources to protect the well-being of children and adolescents who are born, live and grow up in traumatic conditions in the intolerably restrictive environments of Lebanon’s refugee camps. • read more
