Music is a Weapon (MIAW)

At first glance, it may look like a regular drumming circle or a school workshop, but the people behind Music is a Weapon (MIAW) know that making music can open whole new worlds of creativity, health and community. MIAW offers drumming workshops and interactive school residencies, inspiring new musicians both old and young. They also organize “people-powered parties” and unique bicycle-powered sound and light shows for good causes of all kinds. MIAW took a big leap to expand its reach through artist-in-the-schools programs across Alberta and, with a loan from SEF, purchased the equipment to make it all happen.
