Musical Projects Co-ordinator - Bill Brookman Foundation (United Nations Jul 2003-2009)
Musical planning and supervision for cultural enterprise projects in Kosovo, Sierra Leone and Haiti. It included running festivals, workshops and performances in trouble zones. The focus was on Demilitarisation, Demobilisation and Rehabilitation.
The founding concept is that after a serious internal conflict, there is often a cultural vacuum in local communities - many of these towns and villages are so deeply scarred by the trauma that it can take many years to regain a semblance of local pride and ethnic interaction. Therefore, the UN funded a number of initiatives, titled the 'Unite' Festivals in Sierra Leone and Kosovo and 'Caravane de la Paix' in Haiti, inviting international artistes to collaborate with local performers and develop concerts that would drive integration and goodwill.
The role was varied; running musical workshops from behind a harmonium, choreographing juggling performances and encouraging youngsters who'd never been on a stage before. This sat alongside some of the more logistical measures that come with a supervisory role... such as finding a performer who had somehow managed to doze off under a tree five minutes from stage time.
