Thanks to the inspiring cooperation of Musicians For Human Rights something exceptional is entering the Master degree course in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance at the University of Padova.
Both music and human rights knowledge (le savoir des droits humains) share the same creative and empowering potential. The cycle of seminars devoted to music and human rights aims to endow students with an added value in a frame of living humanism and quality education and training; to provide the expertise for organising musical or other artistic events devoted to human rights promotion and cultural participation; to foster intercultural dialogue with a view to produce new shared cultural expressions and developing a universal culture of human rights in accordance with UNESCO Convention of 2005 on the diversity of cultures.
Julian Fifer, Carlotta Sorba
Available places: 40. Attendance to all seminars is compulsory.
The Certificate of Course completion will be delivered on the last seminar on June 8th to those who will have attended at least 7 seminars.
