Creative Music Hive (CMH)
For more information please contact Asako
Creative Music Hive (CMH) is a pilot project implemented in a Montreal YMCA Residence, a short-term residence providing support to newly arrived asylum-seekers who are in the immigration process. CMH is open twice a week for two hours each. In its initial 13 weeks, 242 children and 60 adults participated.
The aim of the project is to address the migration-related psychosocial challenges experienced by asylum-seeking families at the residence, by providing a space for multi-modal creation, encouraging them to explore themselves, connect with others, and build solidarity. Making instruments with recycled materials is a metaphor for resilience.
