Innovation Initiative Grant - To Advance a Music Composition Project for War Affected and Impoverished Sri Lankan Children/Youth

  • Ekanayaka, Tanya (Principal Investigator)

Project Details


The series of full-day music composition workshops for 2014 included participants from schools located in the following northern, north-western and southern Sri Lankan districts: Jaffna, Killinochchi, Negombo, Puttalum, Chillaw and Hambantota. The workshops were attended by nearly 800 school children from across the country, nearly twice the anticipated turnout. Around 90% of the workshops were sponsored by The University of Edinburgh. The ground level organisation of the workshops in Jaffna and Killinochchi were handled by dedicated volunteers of a non-governmental and non-profit organisation while similarly dedicated groups of volunteers facilitated the workshops in the other regions. All participants were provided with free meals and transport.
