"We've built a local bridge between our communities and newcomer/refugee artists… We aim to provide them with a space in society where they can embrace their true selves and pursue what brings them the most joy, which is their artistry, thereby fostering their sense of self-worth, " remarked Sergio Roberto Gratteri.

Throughout our conversation with Sergio Roberto Gratteri, we will explore various facets of the project:

  • What is the essence of the project?

  • The transformative power of music
  • Utilizing music as a tool for change
  • The project's development process

  • Besides artistic prowess, what additional skills are required for artists and newcomers to participate in the project?
