“I used to think that music was like lace upon a garment, nice to have but not necessary. I have come to believe that music is essential to our community life.”
George Eastman - an American entrepreneur who founded the Eastman Kodak Company
2020 - 2021. This project was supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
The Orchestra of Change project enabled young people from different backgrounds together to create music making instruments from recycled instruments.
The project faciliators were Mr Klaje band (Colombia) and craftsman Patrick (Finneghan Tools)
Participants had the opportunity to create their own instruments - pipes, drums, guitars made from recycled or upcycled materials and donated good wood from community bonfires.
