« Give peace a chance » on board the Lennon Bus

November 8, 2013

They come from Italy, the United States, France, England or still Luxembourg and Germany. Together, they decided to take the Lennon Bus across Europe. After England, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, it is inFrance that the Lennon Bus’ crew made a stop on the occasion of the 8th edition of the Unesco’s Youth Forum in Paris, Place Fontenoy.

The Lennon Bus hit the road in 1998, in the United States, with a mission to provide young people with access to state-of-the-art music production studios.   Staffed by a team of musicians and technicians, the Bus now provides young Europeans with hands-on opportunities to benefit from creative tools and use them to develop together creative projects reflective of their ideas.  

The Bus stops at schools, festivals and some institutions to offer workshops for young people from different backgrounds who come together and get to know each other through artistic creation. The purpose of this incredible project is twofold : to use music as a vehicle of peace and mutual understanding, but also to raise young people’s awareness of creative jobs.

The European Lennon Bus now continues its journey to Germany, Belgium, Liechtenstein … No border can stop it !
