MusoMagic is coming to the Murraylands
Published: 25th September 2012
RDA Murraylands and Riverland in conjunction with the South Australian Government initiative, South Australia Works in the Regions, will be bringing the MusoMagic program to the Murraylands on 9-10 Octover 2012. The workshop is expected to be attended by well over 90 students from the region.
Beryl Liebich, the Indigenous Economic Development Manager at RDA Murraylands and Riverland has engaged MusoMagic to provide an innovative, creative program that will unite, engage, motivate and empower the students from years six to 12.
The program is designed to engage groups of people from every kind of background and life experience in a creative exploration of themselves. It consists of two MusoMagic workshops and aims to assist a group of people to develop and create a song using the powerful and unifying medium of music.
MusoMagic will lead a group through activities designed to lift them out of their comfort zone. The workshops are tailored to meet objectives and themes and involve a bonding process of creating a song that reflects shared values within a group. The theme chosen for the Murraylands and Riverland is, “Where are you from?”
The workshop process involves open communication, negotiation, compromise and trust, all facilitated in a creative, fun and safe environment. The tangible result is not only a brilliant song and video clip, but, most importantly, a group that is united under a common banner of shared values and goals.
The intangible outcomes can be long lasting and invaluable with increased respect for self and others, more open communication amongst students, and a renewed sense of engagement with the school. All participants gain a strong sense of achievement, pride and self-empowerment that enhances all aspects of life.
The creator and facilitator of MusoMagic is Adam Thompson who is best known for his success with Australian rock band Chocolate Starfish. Mr Thompson has vast experience as a motivator, entertainer and facilitator. He has worked with remote Indigenous communities and schools in every corner of the country and corporate groups from around the globe.
