Am Ohr der Welt

PROJECT WEEK for school pupils from 4th to 7th of October (booked out)
School children experience and discover social and sonic worlds of music from eight countries in a cultural context by attending concerts and workshops

The Am Ohr der Welt world of music festival celebrates its premiere in Berlin at the end of the project week, on the 8th and 9th of October 2016.

The festival aims to make the diversity and complexity of various cultures accessible and to come alive through music, while celebrating the cultural diversity of our world, especially in Berlin. Over the course of a week, it offers children and families authentic and diverse ways to access music and culture from various countries and cultures. The festival is taking place centrally and in one district: in 2016 at the Werkstatt der Kulturen in cooperation with the Paul Hindemith music school. At the central festival venue, the project week will invite 1,600 primary school children and those at the family festival on the weekend to experience, discover and actively shape worlds of music in their social and cultural context, through a variety of educational methods.

Whether it’s concerts by children, youth and adults; artistic, creative and musical workshops; information events and talks; cultural games, culinary tastings, films and exchange forums: the main focus in 2016 will be the musical cultures of Syria, Turkey, Brazil, India, Israel, Ghana and the Roma community. The festival wishes to foster musical and creative potentials, to discover new worlds with respect, to create long-term cross-cultural partnerships, to remove prejudices and to strengthen cooperation. It provides a platform for expression and gives a voice to many actors from other cultures.
