Tolerance, It’s All in the Music

The Music Meeting program, organized by ESF Interethnic assistance grantee Jazz Fest of Sarajevo, is an educational program that brings together 50 young musicians and music students from throughout BiH, along with 30 peers from surrounding countries in the region. The innovative arts program leverages music as a tool to promote tolerance, coexistence and reconciliation.  Young musicians spent the week playing music together, but also learning how to live and work together. The program included workshops with internationally-renowned artists and music professionals, master classes, and joint performances, all aimed at building a more tolerant society in BiH and across the region.
