Call for Contributions - Al Mada Music Therapy Centre

In April, ICASP research team member Daniel Fischlin will be travelling to Ramallah in the West Bank to visit the Al Mada Music Therapy Centre. The centre's mission includes fostering creative expression, healing, and community-building through the arts, in particular music. Daniel has asked for individuals and/or groups in Guelph to contribute to a box of materials (books, recordings, small instruments, etc.) that will be delivered to the centre.

If you are interested in making a contribution or hearing more about this initiative, please contact Lauren Michelle Levesque or Chris Tonelli at: levesqul@uoguelph.ca or ctonelli@uoguelph.ca.

Thank you for considering making a contribution!

Improvisation is, simply put, being and living this very moment. No one can hide in music, and improvising in music is to be truly in this very moment and being completely yourself, with all your qualities and faults. It is probably the most honest state for a human being to be in.

– John McLaughlin in an interview with Daniel Fischlin.
