Academy student Malgorzata Katarzyna Zwierzchowska has been awarded a $10,000 grant by the Davis Projects for Peace programme to support her project ‘Music with no borders’.

‘Music with no borders’ is a three-day long event in Warsaw, running from 12-14 July 2019. Founded by Zwierzchowska, the project was created in order to raise awareness about cultural and ethnic diversity through musical performances and discussion panels. The programme explores themes of diversity, intercultural collaboration and conflict prevention.

The Projects for Peace initiative is designed to encourage students from eligible universities to design grassroots projects, with the aim of addressing the root causes of conflict throughout the world and promoting peace.

The three-day programme of events for Zwierzchowska’s ‘Music with no borders’ comprises a wide array of lectures, panel discussions and concerts, including discussions on the role of music in conflict prevention and its importance in promoting international collaboration, as well as performances from an internationally formed orchestra, featuring students from the Royal Academy of Music.
