SECTION: Music for Sustainable Community Development COUNTRY: Ireland PROJECT: HONORING THE MUSIC CULTURES OF THE TRAVELLER COMMUNITY: THE NOMAD PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The Traveller community in Ireland has a long, vibrant and colourful musical tradition. Music is very much a part of the Traveller culture and forms an important component in their identity. The Traveller people in Ireland are one example of nomad people who live throughout the world. Other nomad populations can be found throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and the Americas. Community Music projects are at the heart of Nomad‘s work. Creative music making allows the group and the individual express themselves without judgment. This is often liberating and empowering both for the participant and the facilitator. The Nomad project (which is funded by the Higher Education Authority) facilitates community outreach programmes, workshops and seminars. Community Musicians and students from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance conduct workshops and teach a variety of projects. Innovative, student centered, openminded educational and shared learning experiences are all key elements in community music practice, and the results speak for themselves. The need for a middle ground between academia and community work has been an ongoing theme in Nomad‘s work, as has the recognition of marrying theory and reality in a coherent, constructive, innovative and accessible manner. This prompted those involved to devise an access course based on the needs of the Traveller community. This ‗Certificate in Music and Dance‘ was developed in consultation with Nomad tutors and students. It was decided that a ‗blended learning‘ delivery in partnership with regional Traveller training centres would satisfy the needs identified throughout the eight years that Nomad had been working with the Traveller community. This development offers new challenges to those interested in taking a step into an academic arena and to those offering the course. CURRENT STATUS: Sustainability of ‗outreach‘ and access projects is imperative if they are to succeed in making a notable social, musical or educational impact. Currently, the main focus of the project is the aforementioned Certificate in Music and Dance as a vehicle for access to education at the University of Limerick.
