Watch musicians from the Nile Project participate in “musical speed dating” at the 2016 Nile Gathering in Aswan, Egypt.
“Using music to spark cultural curiosity, the Nile Project engages musicians and audiences, encouraging them to feel connected to the world’s longest river and to explore new approaches to its large-scale social, cultural, and environmental problems. The Collective’s collaborative model is a blueprint for a new way Nile Citizens can organize themselves to cooperate to make the Nile more sustainable. In an evolving series of interlocking programs that spring from the concert experience, the project aims to inspire, educate and empower young people worldwide to become Nile Citizens.
The project’s model integrates programs in music, education, dialogue, leadership, and innovation to engage students across disciplines and geographies.”
