Project Details


Australia needs efficacious routes to intercultural cohesion, with music offering a creative and economically viable path for its citizens. This project aims to identify, evaluate and develop theoretical and practical ways in which intercultural music engagement can facilitate social cohesion and enhance community resilience and intercultural empathy. Detailed observational, participatory and experimental work will elucidate the psychosocial processes underpinning intercultural music engagement, isolating variables that promote social cohesion. Best practice guidelines will be developed for organisations seeking to use cultural exposure and interaction to promote positive multicultural experiences
