‘A Discovery of Voice’

17th June 2021 - 19th June 2021

Cyrenians Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution (SCCR) are inviting you to ‘A Discovery of Voice’ Series’ of FREE ONLINE EVENTS in June.

The aim behind ‘A Discovery of Voice’ is to create an interactive series of events incorporating the discovery of emotions through music that focuses on promoting understandings of mental health, emotions, relationships, communication and nurturing a more confident society through musical expression.

The events will use music as a platform to explore our understandings of ‘conflict’ to help boost confidence in individuals and help them hear and better understand their own voice, which in turn can de-escalate conflict and improve relationships. The events will help promote an understanding of our emotions and way of coping, managing and communicating them to those around us..
