Project Details


The aim of this project is to build a network of like-minded thinkers committed to addressing trauma in young people through a scientific and creative arts approach. The planned workshop will envision how collective group drumming might be applied as a therapeutic agent for adolescents at risk of (or suffering from) violence in the home, school, online or communities.

Bringing together researchers and practitioners from the fields of neuroscience, violence prevention & response, music, education, and drumming, at this early stage, the research question would be: What do we know from a transdisciplinary lens about drumming as a therapeutic agent for trauma, and what would an intervention to test this idea look like?
