TRASH RASH – Music out of Trash 2011



22.07 – 02.08.2011


The project TRASH RASH – Music out of trash had the aim to connect formative abilities and musical talent. Therefore, 25 participants from five different countries worked together in workshops to create musical instruments from scrap.

The main objective of the project was to develop a sense of responsible dealing with old materials. Recycling and creativity were combined and the result was fantastic and unique collection of instruments. A piece of music was rehearsed on the instruments and finally presented at the Sun Flower Festival.


Project venues: Freiberg and Dresden (Saxony), Germany

Participating countries: Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Turkey and Germany.

This project was funded by the European programme YOUTH IN ACTION.
