Tolerance starts at school
The "Tolerance goes to school" programme was launched in 2006 as an accompanying measure to "Musica Sacra International". The core aim of the project is to teach children and young people about the five world religions, as well as a sense of and respect for other cultures.
In today's world, it is becoming increasingly important to break down prejudices and openly confront the supposedly foreign. In times of globalisation, children and young people in particular need a good foundation of knowledge in order to understand and classify their own culture and religion.
The programme is primarily aimed at children and young people of all age groups.
What do you believe in? - Reading series for pre-school and primary school children
Together with the Marktoberdorf public library, readings are offered in which age-appropriate stories are read to children. There are games, colouring and handicrafts. The centres can choose between two themes: The Jewish festival of Passover or the Muslim fasting period of Ramadan followed by Eid.
If you are interested or have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Indian drumming workshop
In cooperation with the Mittelschule Marktoberdorf and the Sophie-La-Roche-Realschule Kaufbeuren[nbsp]Musica Sacra International is organising a workshop on the subject of Indian rhythm. Magnus Dauner, who himself studied at the Karnataka College of Percussion in India, accompanied the percussion classes of percussion teacher Stefan Beranek. Together with the children, they work on a rhythm composition in the Indian rhythm language Konnakol. This gives the children an insight into the millennia-old drumming tradition of South Indian music and the South Indian culture, which is inextricably linked to Hinduism . The piece, which was rehearsed over several weeks, will be performed by the students as part of Musica Sara International.
Exhibition "World Religions - World Peace - Global Ethic"
In the foyer of the Richard Wengenmeier Hall of the Bavarian Music Academy Marktoberdorf, a mobile and free exhibition will be made available to visitors for the duration of the festival. This exhibition, organised by the Stiftung Weltethos, consists of ten panels that provide basic information about the world religions and their ethical messages.
If interested, MODfestivals will make the exhibition available to educational institutions for a small fee.
