MUSILIB – Music for children’s multicultural learning 

Erasmus+ 2018-1-FI01-KA201-047196

The project

Musilib is an expansion of the  Multilib project which led to the creation of  a vibrant multicultural and multilingual e-library with traditional and contemporary children’s stories in 12 different languages, including 6 languages spoken by immigrant communities. Musilib project will expand Multilib by one traditional and one contemporary story from a migrant group living in Finland. It aims to add one cultural element: music, an indispensable reflection of culture!

A children’s multicultural music instruments library will be created and contain photos of the instruments, sound files and stories on each instrument written by a children’s book author. The project will promote cultural awareness and cultural understanding.

Target groups

The project has two main target groups:

  • It mainly addresses primary school teachers who need to teach in multi-lingual and multicultural classrooms. Teachers will have a rich resource to use in their classroom.
  • The ultimate target group of Musilib project are primary school children. The library will help children express themselves and take an active role by producing stories and fostering their sense of entrepreneurship.
