Arts at School
MUS-E® Arts at School
is a programme of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation (IYMF).
It concentrates on the development of the Child.
It aims to help children – often coming from challenging environments- to begin the long road to personal fulfilment through the arts - music, dance, singing, drama and visual arts…
Artistic workshops are given by professional artists on a regular
basis, mainly in primary schools. Working in both inner city areas and
rural villages, the artists of MUS-E® introduce new ways of thinking
and creating, to stimulate children’s harmonious development. The
project promotes social integration and aims to reduce levels of
violence, racism and social exclusion amongst the young.
The IYMF now coordinates MUS-E® in 12 countries with 1,000 artists working with 50,000 children in 450 primary schools.
