Today is the birthday of Mozart, a day on which we want to think about the impact of making music.

Lukas Pairon set up a major doctoral research project for the University of Ghent between 2013 and 2016 in Kinshasa (DR Congo) on the possible role of music in social projects. During his presentation he will not only talk about what he learned in Kinshasa on the possible social impact of making music (SIMM) for children and young people in difficult circumstances, but he will also focus on the thoughts of the Dutch philosopher Hans Achterhuis concerning the phenomenon of violence (see his opus magnum ‘Met Alle Geweld’). Hans Achterhuis will be present himself and will discuss his ideas with Lukas Pairon in public.
