The IN-VOICE4MPowerment project arises from the partners’ common vision to foster social inclusion through the development of an innovative multidisciplinary arts-based program.
Teachers and Learners are the groups that this project aims to support, especially in a post Covid 19 era, where social exclusion is accentuated in a series of lockdown periods resulting to minimum communication
and interaction. Based on the premise that choirs are diverse groups that mirror our society, being themselves tools of transformation for the actors concerned in a constantly changing EU and world societies, this program builds on choral theatre, embodied music making and community building through choral singing, vocal soundscapes, choral sound painting, expressive movement, spoken word and visual elements giving students the opportunity to create themselves part of the resources to be performed through training in digital composition and multimedia technologies. In this way it will assist in enhancing their sense of ownership and self-efficacy, strengthen their agency, empower them, and support them in finding their Voice literally and metaphorically.
IN-Voice4Empowerment aims to inspire and empower professionals working in school education, especially music teachers/ choral leaders, but also community workers and other professionals working in the field of social inclusion of disadvantaged youth
