Hearts in Harmony - Inclusion in choral music
Koenraad DE MEULDER (BE)

We claim that “Everybody can sing!”.
But are we always taking into account individuals and groups at risk of exclusion when designing, organising and evaluating an event or an activity? The Hearts in Harmony Network wants to create awareness by implementing inclusion concepts in choral or social events.
The lecture will focus on the results of the inclusion activities realized in different parts of Europe. You will learn that the choir community can really makes the difference when it comes to the inclusion of individuals and groups at risk of exclusion in our society.
