Chime for change: the power of musical protest by EMC Youth Committee

TheEMC Youth Committee examines the impact of recent, high-profile protest songs and the well-known controversy surrounding many modern day musical activists including Russia's Pussy Riot. Are their actions purely a publicity stunt or do they serve a higher political purpose in promoting and facilitating positive and lasting change? 

Following debate and reflection, the outcomes will be directed towards the continuing growth, development and promotion of the Manifesto for Youth and Music in Europe. Like protest songs themselves, this document is a valuable tool for encouraging and cultivating an increasingly beneficial dialogue, breaking down barriers and amplifying the voice of young musicians in revolutionizing cultural policy making across Europe.
