About Ears Wide Open
Ears Wide Open is a music concert project, which aims to develop new ways to address the intercultural dialogue and intercultural musical cooperation, through creative musical processes (CMP). The concert project is carried out with the collaboration between Egyptian and Danish music professionals in order to develop tools for working with CMP as part of an artistic and a cultural awareness, and in order to strengthen the involvement of culturally marginalized groups.
