Music Action International MAI

WAYout has partnered with Music Action International, MAI, to deliver workshops with WAYout members and community groups. We currently run regular sessions in the male and female prisons.

Music Action International use the power of creativity to overcome the effects and causes of war, torture and armed conflict. They provide innovative ways to support young people and adults to overcome the debilitating effects of war-related stress and trauma and connect divided communities in a powerful way through creative music programmes

We have run three workshops, training ten facilitators from WAYout’s membership, who have run workshops with the Juvenile Detention Centre and a disabled group in Brookfields. We have performed in Ferry Junction and Susan’s Bay and are now looking for funding to develop this further.
