Migration Hub Network is excited to host an event together with an organisation called HEARTBEAT: Amplifying Youth Voices that does unique work bringing together Israeli and Palestinian youth musicians creating opportunities for them to build critical awareness, respect, and trust while harnessing creative nonviolent tools for self-expression and social change.
The event will start with a workshop on storytelling held by Heartbeat, please see for below more information.
After the workshop we will have a chance to get to know better the Heartbeat team, their programme participants and their work in a relaxed atmosphere. And — of course — the night will end with some music!
5 pm: Workshop on Storytelling and Public Narrative
7 pm: Networking with music
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO REGISTER FOR THE EVENT ON EVENTBRITE.
Public narrative is the leadership practice of translating values into action, linking our own calling to that of our community to a call to action. It is comprised of three parts: the story of self, a story of us (story of a community you are a part of), and a story of now (call to action). Because it engages the «head» and the «heart» narrative can instruct and inspire — teaching us not only why we should act, but moving us to act. In this workshop, we will focus on how to tell the «story of self,» each participant will learn about what makes a good story and will construct a personal story using the tools of public narrative that relates to the organization or community he or she is a part of. Together we will practice telling out own stories and listening to others' stories.
Heartbeat unites Israeli and Palestinian youth musicians to build critical understanding, develop creative nonviolent tools for social change, and amplify their voices to influence the world around them. As a positive alternative to the normalization of segregation, violence, and racism, Heartbeat creates spaces and opportunities for Palestinian and Israeli youth musicians to build critical awareness, respect, and trust while harnessing creative nonviolent tools for self-expression and social change. Engaging in a sustained music, dialogue, and empowerment process, Heartbeat youth musicians become agents of change; harnessing the tools of creativity to imagine possibilities, ask questions, and publicly address systemic problems such as violence, oppression, and inequality — partnering to create a safe, equitable future for all.
This event has also been made possible through the support of Heartbeat's partner organization in Berlin, The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy.
