EMMA for Peace partnering with Found Sound Nation


EMMA for Peace and Found Sound Nation are extremely proud and excited to announce a partnership to jointly develop and promote social-engaged music programming between the Euro-Mediterranean region and the USA.

Found Sound Nation, a New York-based nonprofit organization, is a collective of musicians and artists who leverage the unique power of creative sound-making to help build strong, just, healthy communities.

In 2012, FSN partnered with the US Department of State’s Bureau for Educational and Cultural Affairs to create OneBeat, an international music exchange program.

By working together,  through music diplomacy, the two organizations hope to build bridges of peace and cultural understanding between the two continents.


EMMA for Peace at the CAWC Egypt

CAWC (Civilization Ambassadors Winter Camp Egypt) is a 7-days international camp for worldwide youth hosted by OMA (Oyoun Masr Association for Cultural & Social Development).

During the programme, participants from 18 to 30 years old  learn basic concepts on human rights and democracy through video scripts extracted from daily situations in Egypt, UNESCO publications on human rights, lectures, speeches, and group discussions. After the completion of the workshop, participants are expected to play the role of multiplier and disseminate the concepts of democracy and human rights in their communities.

EMMA for Peace Founder and President, Paolo Petrocelli, will give workshops on music diplomacy and cultural leadership.

After the revolution in 2011, Egypt has been striving for building a democratic society but concepts of human rights and democracy are new to many people. This series of workshops aims to provide especially young people in rural areas an occasion to learn about human rights and democracy and also to build the sense of solidarity in their communities.
