Using music to inspire young people in Israel and Palestine to join together, celebrate their differences in harmony, and develop a common language that transcends politics, religion, and cultural identities

“Reconciliation comes from meeting, from being in the same space together. Racism and violence can be cancelled out by working together. Can you hate someone who sings with you? What kind of friendships can be created from playing music together?”

 

Arnon is taking part in the 2018 Gather Fellowship as part of SE Forum’s partnership with Seeds of Peace.

Building Bridges Through Music

Arnon's current project is an immersive music workshop geared toward young people living in Israel and Palestine, targeting the challenge of a growing hostility, misunderstanding and distance between Israelis and Palestinians. Arnon believes that the greatest challenge to resolving the conflict is a lack of communication, and that music — the universal language — can be a powerful tool to unite, create a safe environment for respectful dialogue, and ultimately serve as a vehicle for social change. His workshop will teach how music can be an effective language to communicate conflict and express ourselves to others.
