Thank you Alte Feuerwache Mannheim and Rim Irscheid for inviting us to join this year’s Planet Ears Festival! Tom will take part in the Symposium „Sounds of Ukraine“, joining a discussion with Mariia Vorotilina (Voices Ukraine / Theater Kampnagel), Larysa Kharchenko (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen IfA) and Rim Irscheid (King’s College London) to talk about how projects aimed at dispelling prejudices against post-Eastern communities changed in the course of the war, and how they manage to support cultural workers in Germany as well as in Ukraine.
For 4 months, customers and employees of the Jobcenter Mannheim wrote and rehearsed their very own song under our direction. On July 8, the project “Pop meets Jobcenter” culminated in a well-attended final concert at Musikpark Mannheim.
We are very proud of this year’s collaboration with NEXT Mannheim and Mannheim Music Commission e.V, creating Mannheim’s first Street Art Festival and bringing over 200 musicians to the city center, turning it into a big stage!
Tom had the opportunity to talk about URAL Music Camp and the idea behind the project with DetektorFM.
