Musical station for the promotion of coexistence and culture of peace in El Salvador

San Salvador, March 2022. As part of the Moveo Project, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for Central America and the Caribbean (UNODC ROPAN), the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) inaugurated the playful station “Sounding and transforming” (Sonando y transformando) at the Tin Marín Museum, a space where children and young people can develop musical skills through creative experimentation with percussion instruments and sound games to promote coexistence and a culture of peace.
This space aims to promote an inclusive and educational experience where children and young people have access to democratic and creative spaces, where they can experiment and learn through the methodology of play in recreational activities that strengthen their overall development, to be leaders in the construction of spaces of coexistence, peace and democracy and with that objective this new music station is implemented in the Tin Marín Museum.
The musical station "Sonando y Transformando" is an outdoor space that will allow coexistence and musical education simultaneously for the visiting public, with large format instruments.
"As Tin Marín we are very happy to be part of the Moveo Project and to implement activities such as the music station. We know that music has a positive impact on the development of children and adolescents, that is why all the people who visit us will have the opportunity to explore their creativity with different instruments, becoming the protagonists of their own musical presentation," said Juan Carlos Novoa, Tin Marín's executive director.
For its part: "For the promotion of coexistence and the culture of peace, there is no more propitious and ideal medium than music... the language of harmony, feelings and souls," commented Birgit Gerstenberg, United Nations Resident Coordinator in El Salvador.
The musical station of sound games is a different alternative for people of different ages to enjoy, interpret or experience different sounds and songs allowing them to unleash their creativity, thus being the protagonists of their own musical work.
"Sonando y transformando" has 6 percussion instruments (2 xylophones, 2 tubophones, tubular bells and congas).
The station will be open to the public permanently, during the museum's regular hours: Friday through Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
