The Mitrovica Rock School is part of Music Connects, in partnership with Musicians Without Borders, Fontys Rockacademie, Roma Rock School and Music School Enterprise. We were established by Musicians Without Borders and Community Building Mitrovica.

Musicians Without Borders

Musicians Without Borders (MWB) uses the power of music to connect communities, bridge divides and heal the wounds of war and conflict. The original Mitrovica Rock School concept was born from an encounter between MWB, local organization CBM, and Mitrovica musicians. MWB partners with MRS as one of the lead implementers, and supports the organization with capacity building.
