i61COLLECTIVE LAUNCHES CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN FOR CONCERTS IN ISRAEL & BETHLEHEM
On the 6th of June 2018, 7 UK musicians will fly out to Israel to begin a music tour of Israel and The West Bank. The group will be performing small concerts in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Galilee and Bethlehem.
The vision of the tour, called “Music on The Wind“, is to use music to invest in both the lives of Israelis and Palestinians and is the effort of the Directors of the i61Collective, Deborah Paul and Christy Anastas.
Christy and Deborah’s short film, Love Has No Borders won Gold in the Religious Freedom and Business film category, which was screened at the UN in Geneva and at the Religious Freedom and Business Symposium and Peace Summit in Seoul, South Korea in March.
The tour will be promoted to diverse communities from across Israel and Bethlehem.
As directors of the I61Collective, Deborah and Christy will be taking seven talented artists from different musical backgrounds, a filming crew including a sound engineer, a tour host and a concert planner are making up the core team.
There are looking for donation partners to support the concerts, and are crowdfunding via Music On The Wind JustGiving Page
“We believe that music has the ability to cross borders and penetrate walls. In essence like a bird, it flies on the wind. Our desire is simple, to use music to invest into the lives of people from all backgrounds, race and religions”
Positive steps and goodwill actions that each of us take, are the pillars for bringing change and building bridges. We are taking an unbiased non-political approach to bringing two communities together through music.
“It is not “forgive and forget” as if nothing wrong had ever happened, but “forgive and go forward,” building on the mistakes of the past and the energy generated by reconciliation to create a new future” Alon Paton
