Music and poetry evenings
Poetry occupies a great place among the literary arts, as it addresses the conscience of the feelings of the recipients and uses language close to their hearts, and has a key role among the Arab peoples, where it is used to express the thoughts and ideas in their minds in all fields, so the Foundation has been holding poetry evenings since its founding, but since 2017 it has been used by the poet to accompany a musical background performed by creative local musicians to blend art forms and offer beautiful evenings to the audience.
In a poetry evening to publicize the evil divan of love, novelist and poet Ibrahim Nasrallah was accompanied by Tarek al-Jundi (Oud), Samirat (Violin), Khaled Belawi (Cello), and Nasser Salameh (Rhythm). During a poetry evening for the poets, Mared and Tamim Barghouti, and the publicity of the book "All the Oppressed Wings" by the Egyptian late Radwa Ashour, the musicians Raleigh Barghouthi (Law) and Omar Abad (Oud) participated.
During a poetry evening for Dr. Maha Al-Atum and Abboud al-Jabri, and a poetry evening by Ghadeer Haddadin and Wafa Jabour, the musical background was the sound of the oud by Essam Alian, during a poetry evening by Ghazi Al-Tiba, a poetry evening by Amani Al-Mubarak and Doaa Al-Bayata, the musical background was the voice of the Qanun by Hammam Eid.
Music and children
Believing in the promising role of children and young people in shaping the future, the Foundation has been keen for years to create an environment that stimulates their creativity through its integrated programs, including a library dedicated to children and young people "The Path of Knowledge", training workshops, activities, space for innovation and numerous awards, and the fact that music is part of creativity has incorporated music into many activities offered by the Knowledge Path Library for children, for example:
The Foundation has conducted several musical exercises for the pioneers of the Children's Knowledge Path Library as a popular musical identity workshop for young pioneers of the Knowledge Path Library to revive old folk musical instruments and introduce the generation to them, and training on the basics of playing the flute and how to make it, which aims to identify musical instruments "flute, youth", how to get the sound out of the flute correctly, read notes, organize and control the way of breathing and others.
Over two years, The Knowledge Path Library established the Knowledge Path Choir, which includes intensive full-year music training through more than 30 training sessions, including singing, playing simple musical instruments, and then holding a concert at the end of every training to allow young people to express themselves through music, increase their self-confidence, and discover talent and abilities in a stimulating and positive way.
Even the usual activities of the Children's Knowledge Path Library have consistently included music: during summer and winter clubs, there is a period of music axis that introduces children to music and musicians, anecdotal readings include stories and musical books.
As for the awards, the Foundation has created a full field of music in the Creativity Award for Children and Youth (Abdeh), an award that gives talented people a serious opportunity to express themselves and prepares them to be part of the general cultural, cognitive, and creative landscape, which is a sign of the progress of nations and their cultural sophistication.
